Roque to nurses: Take advantage of emergency recruitment

News

The government is calling on health care professional to take advantage of the emergency recruitment and gain clinical experience amid the overseas deployment ban.

“Kaunting tiyaga lang po but take advantage of the opportunity na rin po to prove your worth in the Philippines as clinical nurses,” Presidential Spokesperson Secretary Harry Roque said during August 24 press briefing.

“Ang unang-unang konsiderasyon po ng Presidente ay pangalagaan po ang kalusugan ng ating mga health workers dahil ang pupuntahan po nila ay mas malala pong kaso ng COVID-19,” Secretary Roque said. “Pangalawa po, charity begins at home; mayroon naman po tayong mga bakanteng mga posisyon, dito po muna po tayo sana po magtrabaho.”

“And speaking as someone with experience in the recruitment industry of nurses, iyong mga bagong graduates po at saka iyong mga hindi na po clinical, kinakailangan po kung gusto ninyong magtrabaho abroad, magkaroon po kayo ng clinical experience dito. Sa tingin ko po, kapag kayo po ay nag-apply dito sa emergency recruitment ng ating gobyerno at nagtrabaho po habang may COVID, naku, pag-aagawan po kayo lalo kapag natapos na itong pandemic na ito dahil with your clinical experience at the time of COVID, you will become po the subject of head hunters,” he added.
