To All Incoming Filipino Nurses!

***Just got this nice message from a fellow nurse. I don't actually know him, but his message is the reality of Filipino nurses' condition. We all know that that when we say Nurse, most people who are not in this profession would definitely think that we are rich or soon be to rich. But they are all wrong, it would take a long process and a lot of time and effort before we could reach that or worse, we would not be able to become successful. As they say, nursing is not just a profession, but also a vocation because we need to be devoted to our profession. We need to learn on how to love our patients... and not self interest. This is the truth, most nurses have taken this profession because most of us think that when we graduate and pass all the needed exams we would be able to go abroad (esp. US) and earn big. But unfortunately, most nurses are suffering because they cannot even find a job in their own country, including me. I must admit that before I enrolled for nursing, I was so confused with what to take as my course. And there goes my mom and sister who was nagging me to take nursing because it is in demand abroad. According to them, I would get work easily. Okay, since I didn't know which course to take, I took this course without even knowing if I was emotionally and physically ready. I got tempted with the possible salary that I might get. But now, I am just a volunteer nurse in a government hospital. There was a time that I wanted to give up. There was a time that I wanted to study again. Part of me wanted to stay with my profession and another part of me wanted to give up and take another path. So for those who are still planning to take nursing, think twice. Nursing if for those who really love this profession and not because of what and how much we are going to have... peace out...

Kung may time pa para mg iba kayo ng course...mag iba na kau...
Kung hindi nio tlga gusto ang nursing...wag na kau mgsayang ng pera at panahon
Kung ikaw na paloko loko lang sa pag-aaral ng nursing... maawa ka nman sa pghihirap ng ngpapaaral sau
Pero kung tulad ko ikaw na nsa puso ang "caring profession"... papanindigan mo ito at handa kang danasin ang lahat ng paghihirap sa propesyong ito...
Nung ngaaral pa ko, hindi sumagi sa isip ko na magiging ganito pala kahirap ang takbo ng buhay pagka graduate...sa totoo lang hindi ganun kasaya nung grumaduate ako, dahil iniisip ko ang Board exam
>kylngan makumpleto ang cases at mapapirmahan
>kylangan maifile mo sa prc
(na isinumpa ko tlga sa sarili ko na hindi ko na ddanasin ang hirap ng pagaaply for bord exam)
>kylangan mong mgreview at pghandaan ang bord exam
Tpos ano?...pg dating ng bord exam... ni wla pa sa 1/4 ng pngaralan nio nung review ang lalabas sa bord. Na dapat tlga, mganda ang nging foundation mo nung ngaaral ka pa...
Tpos ano?...na paghihintayin kau ng halos 2 buwan para malaman kung pasa o bagsak ka! PRAISE GOD kung pasado, pero kung bagsak...eh maiicipan mu tlgang mgsuicide nalng dahil sa kahihiyan sa mga taong nakapalibot sau...
Tpos ano?...pagnakapasa ka...aun!
>pipila ka n nman ng pgkahaba haba sa prc para makuha ung grade mo
>mgpapafile ka nman para makapg oath taking ka
>mghhntay ka ng 1 buwan para irelease ung certification of passing and rating mo
>mghihintay ka ng 3 buwan para irelease ang license mo! (ang pinagsunugan mo ng kilay sa pgaaral) pero ung iba (nakasurvive lang sa pangongopya)haha!
Tpos ano? akala nio makakahanap agad kau ng work sa hospital??? manigas ka! tumirik man mata mo, hnd pa tpos ang pghihirap...
Kung mag-aaply ka na...
>DAPAT MAY BACKER KA!!! (no. 1 rule yan!)
>kylangan mo ng experience not less than 2 months
>advantage ang 80 above ang bord rating (hahaha! praise God pasok ako sa banga!)
>advantage ang nkpag IVT training ka na (na sandamakmak na namang pghihirap ang iyong dadanasin)
>na minsan dapat 21 years old ka na kasi ung iba d tumatnggap kapg 20 yrs old lng
>at eto, get used to this! putek, hindi mo na kylngan pumnta ng HR department para mgsubmit ng resume, dahil sa guard p lng, malalaman mo na na FREEZE HIRING!!!
