DFA warns Filipinos vs fake online nursing job offers in UK

Filipino jobseekers were warned on Tuesday against falling for dubious online job offers promising employment as nurses in the United Kingdom (UK).

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said a report on the offers from the Philippine Nurses Association-UK prompted the warning from the Philippine Embassy in London.

"The new illegal recruitment scheme involves online job offers sent by email to prospective victims, mainly nurses, who have previously submitted their resumes in public job search websites," the DFA said in an article posted on its website.

The DFA said the modus operandi involves the supposed employer and/or his solicitor (lawyer) sending the victim successive emails.

The emails contain a job offer, a Contract of Agreement with a very attractive package of wages and benefits, a Certificate of Employment, and a blank Certificate of Good Moral Character.

Phl seeks easing of Japan nurse hiring requirements

By Elisa Osorio (The Philippine Star)

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippines will be asking for the relaxation of some of the entry requirements of Filipino nurses to Japan during the renegotiation of the Japan-Philippine Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) scheduled this year.

Under the current JPEPA rules, only one Filipino nurse was able to go to Japan.

“Something has to be done about this. Qualifications must be relaxed,” a ranking government official said in an interview.

Other issues that may be raised are the reduction on sugar tariff and the increased access of the country’s agricultural products such as chicken to Tokyo.

The official said the mandated renegotiations of the JPEPA have not yet started. Under the JPEPA, there must be a renegotiation five years after the agreement was signed.

However, in spite of the pressure to renegotiate, the official said it may be beneficial for the country to wait because there are also issues that the Philippine government is avoiding. For instance, the official said that the Japanese would like to bring down the tariff of 3,000 cc vehicles and below.

Rural training for Filipino nurses

MANILA, Philippines – Several years ago, workers in government had to perform rural service for 15 days to reach out to people in areas outside the cities. They were required to render such services as helping farmers and fisherfolk, assisting barangay health workers, conducting nutrition campaigns, feeding undernourished children, and beautifying communities. The program brought the government closer to the people.

This rural service program is recalled in view of the recent report that the country’s nursing graduates undergoing training in some hospitals have to pay to be included in such programs instead of getting allowances. Organizations and individuals allied with the medical profession as well as some groups deplored the report on the nurses’ situation when it was first disclosed during a Senate public hearing and they called on government to help the new nurses. It is not enough, they said, to regulate nursing schools; government must make sure that these schools have the facilities to train nurses on the job, and must oversee the working conditions of trainee nurses in hospitals.

Philippine Nurses Association warns nurses of questionable recruiters

Thank you so much. Enjoy!

A warning to Filipino nurses has been issued by the Philippine Nurses Association of United Kingdom and Ireland (PNA-UK) concerning some questionable recruiting practices and fraudulent practices.

PNA-UK President Michael Duque says the “kababayans” need to beware of recruitment techniques that cost the nurse large sums of money for nothing.

On the PNA-UK website it illustrates the modus operandi:

“The association has recently documented a modus operandi wherein prospective applicants are sent a message of job interest by email. Most of the applicants’ details have already been gathered from Curriculum Vitae’s (CV) posted online on most public job search domains. Once an applicant replies to the job offer email, the alleged employer will further request for the applicant’s complete and detailed CV for the purpose of starting the processing of documents and papers by his appointed solicitor or attorney-in-fact. Following this, an email containing a detailed Contract of Agreement and a Certificate of Employment will be sent to the applicant with the instruction to sign and send back by email to the employer and his attorney/ solicitor who will be supposed to review the applicant’s papers. The Contract of Employment itself is highly attractive and appealing with an offer of a high salary, loads of bonuses, benefits, and a comfortable work-load or duties and responsibilities. The solicitor will email the applicant with a Certificate of Good Moral Character application form and instructions on how to complete this important document, without which the whole process of job recruitment cannot proceed. This significant document (Certificate of Good Moral Character) needs to be processed before anything else. The solicitor’s email clearly identifies himself as independent of the employer and often times assert that he works for the High Courts or from a prominent Solicitor’s Firm. The solicitor’s email will also contain specific instructions on how to pay his fees before he can further process your application. Oftentimes, request for payment are made through wire transfer, western union money transfer or money gram. “

By Jing Castañeda, ABS-CBN News

MANILA, Philippines – An oversupply of nurses in the country is resulting in nurses becoming victims of illegal recruitment, healthcare groups said Tuesday.

According to the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) and the Alliance of Young Nurse Leaders and Advocates, there are 80,000 nursing board passers each year, while there are just a handful of job openings.

Hospitals also allegedly don't follow the international standard on nurse-to-patient ratio.

Instead of the 1:12 ratio, hospitals currently have between a 1:30 to 1:45 ratio, the groups said.

FOR DECADES, it signified a new version of the Filipino dream. It was not becoming a lawyer or a doctor that parents wished for their children: it was becoming a nurse. And thus nursing became the most popular course in colleges, with one nursing school after another sprouting to meet the boom. Perhaps because of our natural gift for hospitality and our affection for the young and the elderly, Filipinos simply made for excellent nurses.

Generations of Filipinos now have grown up either aspiring to become nurses or subsidized by nurses most likely working abroad. The idea of finding gainful employment in other countries—particularly in wealthy and yet underserved countries like the United States, Canada and Japan—was a potent carrot for these dreamers.

Fewer Pinoys hired abroad in 2010 - POEA

Fewer Pinoys hired abroad in 2010 - POEA
By Mayen Jaymalin (The Philippine Star)
MANILA, Philippines - Fewer Filipino workers were hired abroad this year due to the global financial crisis, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) has reported.

POEA deputy administrator Stella Banawis said the number of Filipinos deployed abroad in 2010 dropped by three percent compared to last year.

“Based on our data, deployment for this year appeared to be on the downtrend,” she said, citing figures as of the third quarter.

Banawis said as of September this year, POEA recorded total deployment 1,070,588 workers.

The figure was lower than the 1,112,840 total deployment a year ago, she added.

Banawis said the hiring of Filipino workers in Australia, Canada and other Western countries is still lower than before because of the crisis.

Hong Kong, one of the major markets for Filipino workers, also posted a drop in deployment because employers are now hiring Indonesians and other foreign workers willing to accept lower salaries, she added.

Banawis said the implementation of the amended Migrant Workers Act late this year has also adversely affected the processing and hiring of Filipino workers abroad.

MANILA, Philippines—The Philippine National Police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (PNP-CIDG) on Monday warned nurses who want to work in the United Kingdom of a modus operandi of some agencies guaranteeing scholarships.

Citing Police Superintendent Bernard Yang, chief of the investigation unit of the Task Force Against Illegal Recruitment, Radyo Inquirer reported that some agencies offering visa processing assistance to the UK also offer scholarships and job opportunities to Filipino nurses.

Agencies usually require P200,000 to P300,000 placement fees from their recruits

More Pinoy nurses likely to pass Japan's licensure exam

MANILA, Philippines - More Filipino nurses are likely to pass Japan’s licensure examination and get employed in that country this year, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) said yesterday.

POEA Administrator Jennifer Manalili said the Japanese government has allowed English translation in the licensure examination for foreign nurses, including Filipinos.

“It would be easier for Filipino nurses to understand and pass the examination this February because there would already be English translation,” she said.

Last year, only one Filipino nurse passed Japan’s licensure examination because the test was purely in Japanese.

Manalili expressed confidence that more Filipino nurses would eventually be hired in Japan.

Japan pledged to hire 1,000 Filipino nurses, but only 300 have been hired so far due to difficulty in complying with the requirements, she added.

Under the agreement between the Philippines and Japan, qualified nurses will undergo six months of language and culture training in Japan during which they will receive an allowance of $400, or more than P21,000.

After the training, Filipino nurses and caregivers would be allowed to stay in Japan for three years to work in hospitals and other medical facilities.

Glut of Filipino nurses leads to exploitation

MANILA, Philippines - A glut of registered nurses and nursing graduates in the country has led to their exploitation by some hospitals, which require them to pay to be allowed to do “volunteer work.”

At a hearing of the Senate health and labor committees, nursing organizations confirmed new nurses are forced to resort to “volunteerism-for-a-fee” just so they could rack up experience needed for future employment here or abroad.

Dr. Teresita Barcelo, Philippine Nursing Association president, said some hospitals have taken to calling the practice “training programs.”

“These hospitals have found a way of going around this volunteerism-for-a-fee, kasi naman unethical talaga,” she said.

However, Barcelo also admitted no one wants to file a formal complaint or testify against unscrupulous hospitals or health care facilities since the volunteer nurse also benefits by way of getting an employment certificate.

Alvin Dakis of the Association of Young Nurse Leaders and Advocates International said: “We keep telling our nurses to stop doing this because it’s illegal.”

Philippine Hospitals Association (PHA) vice president Dr. Hermogenes Jarin said it was the first time he had heard of the practice of “volunteerism-for-a-fee." He agreed it should not be condoned.

However, he confirmed that some PHA members indeed charge fees for training programs for new nurses, a practice allowed by both the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Professional Regulation Commission

The much-dreaded cold and flu season is upon us. And if you’re like me, there isn’t any spare time built into the schedule to be sick. So how can I bolster my defenses against the germs lurking in the common areas in my office, the mall where I do my holiday shopping and the rest stops I encounter in my holiday travels?

Have you also heard about antibiotic resistance? If you are interested in learning about pharmacology inline with antibiotics, checkout this article.
I took a look at the research Emily Sohn and Rachel Johnson, Ph.D., M.P.H., have written about for EatingWell and pulled together a list of what’s worth trying—and what’s not.

Try It: Vitamin D
In a study published recently in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, children who took daily vitamin D supplements (1,200 IU) were 40 percent less likely to get a common flu virus than kids who took a placebo. Laboratory studies indicate that the nutrient may help immune cells identify and destroy bacteria and viruses that make us sick, says Adit Ginde, M.D., M.P.H., a public health researcher at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver.

Caregiver applicants must be physically and psychologically fit, and should be graduates of any four-year course or nursing graduates, and certified as caregivers by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

The POEA said that based on the first and second deployments, the majority of the Japanese institutions hiring preferred candidates 20 to 35 years old.

“The institutions are also strict about the physical and psychological fitness of candidates," the POEA release added.

SIMI Valley, California – A Filipino, dubbed as the “traveling singing nurse,” continues to help patients heal faster through music.

Dominic Limpin is a registered nurse specializing in dialysis. The New York-based nurse began his journey shortly after the September 11 terror attacks.

Limpin was a victim of post traumatic stress. As a result, he got frequent nightmares and his doctors recommended that he travel out of New York.

That was when he decided to take his job as a nurse and his love of music on the road.

“You know that all these patients are going through the same thing. So you can feel for them. You have 2 choices, either to stay miserable or you can be an instrument,” Limpin said
