Just wanted to share with you all struggling unemployed colleagues. A friend underwent this training and from what she said, the 6k was worth it. Problem is, they have limited slots that easily fill up upon opening. Better be prepared for loads of other people fighting for a spot on the program.

I wanna laiunch a quiet movement sana here in FB to voice our staunch opposition against this practice. Simple lang ang gagawin naten - we will just replace our profile picture with a picture - it is a pic of FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE with the words "Stop the exploitation of Filipino Nurses" - I will send it to you - and then a letter about our stand against this practice that you can post as a NOTE, maybe, for your FB friends to read.

We will start doing this on MAY 1 - Labor day (because this is after all an unfair labor practice) - and we will end it May 12 - the birthday of Florence Nightingale.

That's all we have to do, replace our profile pic - (and then convince as many nurses, even non-nurses to let the government and the public know that we are against this unfair practice, and that IT HAS TO STOP.

Our goal is to get as many people to post this pic on their profile so that by May 12 - as a tribute to the mother of nursing - we can hopefully restore the dignity and nobility inherent in the nursing profession. We are not slaves.

Ang goal lang is for people to take notice. When people changed their profile pics to cartoon characters, it highlighted the crusade against violence towards children. Our goal is to give this issue the same mileage SANA. Kasi nobody seems to be doing anything. THAT KILLS ME!

I hope you're willing to help, Weanne, having noticed how your friends list exploded to maximum capacity since you topped the boards - that is leverage right there.
I wrote Kate as well, and as Christians from AUP, I hope you guys can lend a hand, and help spearhead this quiet yet worthy advocacy.

Changing our pic may seem like a big deal to some - pero if we think about the power of our message and what it can do to change nursing in our country - parang it's a small price to pay - for 12 days lang naman. I know some people might need convincing.

I truly support what you're trying to do for the nursing community and I understand the frustration about the lack of awareness of people in general about the situation of our colleagues here in the country. Maybe you can send me a copy of the avatar we're suppose to use or should we make one ourselves? Hit me back and I'll see what I can do to further spread the news via social networking sites and even this blog. Kudos. :)

P.S. You can email me at or contact me through twitter at :)

Ladies, I am aware of your problems and your desire to make others be aware of your plight.

But one thing I can tell you, spreading this out on the internet will not do you any good, plus, it will damage the global reputation and image of nurses here from the Philippines.

This problem can be solved within the confines of the Philippines; if you post them on the internet, it will have a global effect, it will spread around the world. Do THEY need to know?

Why not unite as one, then submit a complaint to the President, together with all your names and/or signatures. Tell him what he might not be aware of. He is the one who can end or diminish your miseries, not the international community.

I may be too late, but please I beg of you to please think it over again and again and again...

@Akang Bakokang

I think you may have overseen the date of the post. It's more than 2 years outdated. A lot has happened since then. Trainings like this are now banned by the DOH and we now have the RN HEALS program where entry-level nurses are being paid for their work.

As for not sharing this with the global community, why not? If it is the truth then I see no reason for it to be covered up by a fancy lie. And it's not like the PH has an Internet of its own that the world can't get into. How are we, thousands of nurses all over the 7,000 + islands of the country, supposed to unite? A grand protest at EDSA? When is this, the 80s? I'm sorry, but we live in the social media age where everything is transparent and online and, yes, that means other countries can see it too.
