NDP 2016: Gov’t to hire 15,727 nurses

The government is hiring a total of 15,727 nurses for next year under the Nurse Deployment Project (NDP) 2016, Department of Budget and Management (DBM) Secretary Florencio Abad said on Monday.

Abad was in a congressional hearing of House committee on appropriations chaired by Davao City Rep. Isidro Ungab, explaining the national budget for next year.

Abad said that for this year, the government is hiring 13,500 nurses, 398 doctors, 3,100 midwives, 214 dentists, 787 public health workers and 308 medical technologists.

For 2016, he said an additional 15,727 nurses would be hired, plus 946 doctors, 3,100 midwives, 324 dentists, 713 public health workers and 308 medical technologists.

He added that P3.3 billion would be allocated for family health and responsible parenting programs, P1.1 billion for tuberculosis control and P793 million for treatment of public health diseases.

Rep. Leah Paquiz of party-list Ang NARS appealed to Abad to raise the salary level of nurses in government hospitals from Salary Grade 11 (about P18,000 a month) to 15 (P25,000) as mandated by the Philippine Nurses Act of 2002.

She said a special law like the one Congress had enacted for nurses should prevail over general legislation like the Salary Standardization Law for government personnel.

NDP is the DOH program that sends nurses to communities identified by National Anti-Poverty Commission. Previously named as RNHeals, the accepted nurses were given P18,549 monthly salary. [Source]
