The Department of Labor and Employment is accepting online registration of nurses for its Registered Nurses for Health Enhancement and Local Services program, a government press release said.
The online application started Monday and will end on February 4, the press release said.
The program hopes to provide jobs to about 10,000 unemployed nurses nationwide and reach out to unserved or underserved communities in collaboration with the departments of Health and Social Welfare and Development.
The nurses who will be employed for one year, will be given an allowance of P8,000 per month and will be under the supervision of the local government units where they will be assigned. The LGUs concerned are urged to provide additional allowance for them of at least P2,000 and ensure their safety and security, the press release said.
Provinces will be given slots to be determined by DSWD.
Interested applicants can log on to the DOLE website (www.dole.gov.ph). Preference will be given to applicants from municipalities covered by the Health Facilities Enhancement Program of DOH and Conditional Cash Transfer of the DSWD, the press release said.
Applicants can check online if they are qualified at the DOLE website from February 7-10 while orientation will be held on February 11-12 in the provincial center where they will be assigned, it added.*
