75 COMMENTS

    • It’s a two-year contract for those who are already in the program. Slots open every after 6 months if a nurse fails to give very satisfactory performance during his/her duty. You can ask hospitals for available slots.

    • Huh? wala naman sa comment ko na LAHAT ng NDP slots ay para sa mga RN HEALS Graduates.
      Oh Well, this is internet, walang sense makipagtalo. :3

  1. May mga nag text na samin ng mga friends ko dito sa NCR, sa January 27 to 28 daw orientation namin. :D

  2. SA REGION 1….

    1 Walang published exam result.
    2. Walang interview
    3. Walang regular updates, ni sa website nila walang published final list

    kawawa ang mga nag hihintay, sana man lang my organisado, transparent at fair.
    Para san kaya ang exam? Formality lang ata pabor sa mga may backer at former rn heals. nothing has changed, same old rotten system. well, we could only expect no less from a nation such as ours where injustice is found every corner. Gob bless our nation.

  3. Hello..this concernd is for mam lucy tagudin..mam tanong lang po dami kasi rumors regarding sa salary ng rhmpp batch 5..din ila po yong slot na kukunin niyo entire prov ng caraga for rhmpp…thanks po

  4. Puro rumors, proof please. :3
    Naninira pa, kung gusto mo yung trabaho bakit hindi ka mag follow-up. :3

  5. ano ba ang purpose ng exam at pagpasa ng credentials??? formalities sake?? para lang masabi ng public na fare ang pag screen ng applicants?? eh yung mga walang sagot ang nsa list for interview tpos meron pa dung nsa listahan na di nila sinabihan na for interview pla tpos late na namin nalaman na yung mga tinext ang natanggap??!! ano daw yun?!!!! ang gulo naman|!!! sistemang bulok!!!!!

    • Shar Kee, ang mga nag qualify for the exam. ay ung mga kumpleto and documents na dumating sa amin. In fact, tini text pa nga namin ang mga may kulang to comply the deficiencies before the deadline.

      Marami ang pwedeng dahilan bakit ganon ang nangyayari;
      1. Walang signal o hindi umabot sa concerned ‘yong mga text (Network Problems)
      2. Iba na ung cel. nos. ng applicant doon sa nakalagay sa application documents
      3. Baka ung sinasabi mo na nakasagot naman sa exam, hindi tumpak o kulang sa laman ung mga sagot
      4. ‘Yong text namin sa talagang pumasa o umabot sa cut-off score, pinasa-text sa mga kaibigan nila na hindi dapat kasali at nakisuyo na lang na sumali sa interview (anyway, the score of the exam will definitely affect the totality of the result
      5. I admit that one of our loopholes is the late dissimenation and posting of the result, but
      we presumed that all the applicants are readily available and a text away as what was written in all application letters submitted to us.

      Thanks for your comments.

    • sana po dapat next time i.post nu nalang din sa net like yung sa list for interview para kung may cel network problems may ibang alternative pa para malaman kng kasali ka sa interview… i was on the list and i badly needed this job pero hindi ako ininform… i heard a rumor though na hindi naman lahat talaga ng nasa list ay ininform, it’s just a rumor though and i cannot do anything about it already since your list is final.

  6. walang kwenta ang sa caraga region… nag exam na nga at nasagutan ng tama pero ung mga walang sagot ang tinext for interview… meron namang nasa listahan for interview pero dli nila ininform.. ano ba yan!!!

  7. Any news with the written exam result? They say just wait for a call for an interview. Anyone here who already recieved a result? Tia

  8. Walang sistema yung exam sa Albay! Hindi man lang chineck ang ID’s namin kung kami ba talaga yung nagexam.. Yung mga magbabarkada magkakatabi so naggayahan sila. Paalis alis kasi mga examiner. Ang iba naman before the exam, may binabasa nang mga papers… leakage ba? tsk tsk. may narinig pa ako after the exam na group naguusap sila na may slots na sila. nagpapayabangan pa nga sila.. yung anak naman ng taga DoH yung anak nakapasok.. agad agad? haha… sana may sistema & sana pare-pareho lang ang laban.. sige sainyo na ang 18K, serve the people & enjoyin niyo! wag niyo lang kalimutan yung mga tumulong sainyo sa loob o sa labas man ng DOH.. God bless!

    :

  22. any details about region xi? specifically tagum city? I have asked the chd director via email, and he said I should go visit the hr office, which is Davao city…. wala bang tagum city po? :’(.

  23. Hi thanks for this. I’d like to pitch in. On Region 3, applications are ongoing until November 29. Just send the requirements sa mga CHDs.

  24. Sorry if you were not able to be part of the NDP but I disagree that the exam taken from Scribd would be a leakage (unless, they told the applicants about the exam beforehand). Also, I do think that “palakasan” system is still practiced in some regions. Next time, widen your network, instead of complaining of those who have theirs. :) God bless you! :)
