Nursing Licensure Exam (NLE) Result December 2010

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

What happened a year ago happened yet again. My mum called me while I was sleeping to ask for the results of the Nursing Licensure Exam for December 2010.

So here I am blogging about it just about now.

There were a total of 29,711 (35.25%) passers out of 84,287 who took the Nurse Licensure Examination last December 2010 given by the Board of Nursing according to Professional Regulation Commission.

Here’s the list of the successful examinees


Congratulations to the New Registered Nurses!

Enjoy and savour the feeling. As the real challenge of being a professional nurse and staying as a “NURSE” will commence.

Facebook Nurses’ BLACK-OUT 2011

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Ever wonder why your friends suddenly change their Facebook profile pictures to BLACK with their Facebook status stating : “Over 200,000 nurses are unemployed, underemployed & abused in the Philippines. Many of us are overworked but extremely underpaid. Help us gather awareness & support by changing your profile picture to pitch black from January 01-11,2011. It is time we take care of our prime care professionals! Appreciate your Nurses, take care of them – like they take care of you. Join the campaign now! []”???

Check if they are nurses… if they are. This post might give answer to your query.

The “BLACK-OUT” is in support for AYNLA’s (Alliance of Young Nurse Leaders & Advocates International Inc.), a national registered organization of nurse leaders & advocates in the Philippines—- Nurses Black-out campaign 2011.

This is for every nurses’ endeavour, cause or advocacy…

They came up with the advocacy particularly to utilize social media as a tool for nurses’ rights awareness building, initiate social & mass mobilizations in relation to the protection of nurses’ rights and to garner support from individuals, organizations and communities to end all forms of discrimination and abuse to nurses in the workplaces and communities.

Increasing number of nurses has always been a problem (or shall I say, is becoming a crisis) but why just now? According to PRC (Professional Regulation Commission) our country already produced 200,000 unemployed and underemployed RN’s in the year 2010.

It is ironic that the Philippines is one of the top exporter of their own skilled, professional nurses but the country, itself is lacking of many nurses to take care of the communities and the society.

Hospitals and healthcare facilities acknowledge their shortage of nurses but fails to hire more because of proclaimed budget constraints. This leaves dozens of nurses flooding in workplaces other than in the field of nursing like call centers.

Many new nurses, wanting to gain hospital/clinical experience as a presumed key to international employment, offer their professional nursing services to the hospitals without getting paid. [Please insert my name here…]Yes, we are called “Volunteer Nurses” “OJT Nurses” “Nurse Trainees”… And yes to the fact that we pay for a “3-month” or “6-month” hospital experience.

This campaign period is from January 01 – 11, 2011. I know it’s a bit hard to change your profile picture to BLACK but it is for a good cause so why not join the cause?


Seriously on HIATUS.

Im soooo sorry for that, my dear blog.

Anyways, I would like to Congratulate my new colleagues for making it out alive 😛 Welcome to the world of Registered Nurses where BUMs, Underemployment, Unemployment, Non-stop training, Job/Hospital Hunting and VOLUNTEERISM starts.

Pardon me for sounding a LITTLE Sarcastic but yes, that’s the sad reality. Nevertheless, enjoy the feeling till it last! ? Say hello to your names at the broadsheet and tarpaulins for some :]


*Will not post the list of passers, top-performing schools etc anymore. LAZY. Sorry. LOL ?*
