DOH RN Heals 5 in 2014 eyes higher salaries for nurses

The Department of Health (DOH) is looking to regularize and pay higher salaries to nurses employed under RN Heals 5 in 2014.

Update: It will be DOH Nurse Deployment Project 2014.

Health Secretary Enrique Ona Jr. divulged in an interview at Malacañang that the government is planning to absorb half of the nurses currently working under RN Heals program. They will also be paid a monthly salary twice the amount of what they are receiving.

“We will cut into half the number of nurses to be hired next year. This is the plan. They will be paid the real compensation of a nurse which is about P16,000,” he said to reporters.

If President Benigno “PNoy” Aquino III approves the proposal, DOH will start hiring or absorbing nurses for RN Heals Batch 5 in January 2014.doh rn heals 5 in 2014

RN Heals or Registered Nurses for Health Enhancement and Local Services project started in February 2011 with goals to improve access of the country’s poor to quality healthcare with social services by creating a pool of registered nurses with enhanced clinical and preventive health management competencies that will eventually increase the nurses’ employability.

This year, over 22,000 nurses have been deployed to 70 DOH hospitals, 1,491 municipalities, 143 cities and 13 districts of Metro Manila. The application period and selection period ran through October 2012 to November 2012, and the deployment started January 2013.

The nurses under the program were pre-service trainees who were given allowances/stipend of P8,000 monthly.

I’ll be posting updates regarding RN Heals 5 application and requirements once made available by the DOH and other related agencies, so visit this site often.

  3. wala n daw po RN heals kaya nga-nga n po ang mga Nurses .. the hospitals need nurses but they didnt hire nurses because of some reasons .. " BAKIT PA NGA BA SILA MAGHIRED NG NURSES EH MADAMI NAMAN NAGBO-VOLUNTEER??" such interesting facts from the hospitals !!!!!

  4. So nde na po maghihire ng panibagong RN kundi magshoshort list na lng sila sa kasulukuyan mga under ng rnheals 4? Nalilito po kasi ako. Pls reply. Thanks.

  5. i just passes the board this June 2013, for now i am a volunteer nurse in the district hospital. i heard about RN heals and im somewhat interested into it. 201Id want to make sure if there is still still Rn heals program for this coming 2014, yet the DOH have not posted any announcement regarding these what, how and where we could apply. hoping for the next news and announcement of submission of application for the 2014 batch. 🙂

  6. pag nagstart na ba ang submission ng requirements, pwede bang lahat pasahan ko? i mean pag nagpasa ba ako sa isang hospital record yun nung hospital lang o record na yun ng buong Rn heals? kaya di na kailangan pasahan yung iba, o need kong pasahan kung ano ano mang hospital ang gusto kong applyan? gets nyo po ba? salamat.

  7. ano to embes na sana marami magkaroon ng trabaho magbabawas pa sila? napakaUnfair naman nito.. pano kami na di pa nakapasok sa rnheal?

  8. Hi! May I just ask, will it still be considered as a part of Nursing Experience for those who would want to go abroad just after taking some training here in the Philippines? Cause, technically, what they require abroad is HOSPITAL experience. Can this “Nurses to the Barrios” or RNH5 be a part of the experience that might be listed on the resume well in fact, it seems that this will distribute nurses in Rural Health Units? Cause I think the previous RNHs are better than this RNH5 because the first four has at least hospital experiences included in the program.

  9. i just had d exam today… over 780 applicant were able to take the exam but DOH will only accept 125 of us!… what the hell! they named the program EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM FOR RN.. but after the exam, i felt that the program is useless, if, only few of us nurses will be hired!

  10. aghan mo kasi da,ayan last 2minutes kna dumating.d kna tuloy npayagan mg pasa.hmm.ok lng yan d tlga para sayo yun da.hehe.

  11. tama ka jan,. dapat kasi wag volunter ang gawin natin ,dapat as trainee para ma absorb tayo,. hindi kasi nila maramdaman ang kakulangan ng nurses kung anjan tayo as volunteers nila,.

  12. Application will start on November 4, 2013 and will end on November 29, 2013 or depending on the CHD’s prerogative.

  13. Nakakasad nmn…bkit nung batch nmin hospital setting 9 taw lng..ngyong 2014 halos doble salary nila community setting..
