Nursing Jobs in the Government

March 5, 2012 Category :All About Nursing| Announcements| Nursing Articles| Nursing Jobs 0

Employment opportunities for nurses abound in the government.  For nurses who are in for a challenging but not so financially rewarding work as a nurse, one can opt to provide service through the government.  There are many government institutions that require nurses.  The armed forces of the Philippines for instance may require nurses in the military in all its three branches, army, navy and air force.  Becoming a military nurse however, may entail additional training especially if one will be assigned in the fields.  The Philippine National Police may also need nurses because police officers are also susceptible to health injuries because of the nature of their job.   However, the most common nursing employment in the government is public health nursing.  This is a specialized type of nursing that incorporates health care service with public service.  A public health nurse is usually assigned in the different health clinics in different communities as well as public or government hospitals around the country.  In lieu of which, the Department of Labor and Employment in cooperation with the Department of Health launched the Project NARS program, which is designed to hire and mobilize unemployed nurses to identified municipalities around the country to provide and deliver health care services. Aside from working in public health centers, government hospitals and other government sponsored health programs as nurse, one can also apply as a nurse in local government units (LGUs) as well as government owned and controlled corporations (GOCC’s). LGU’s refer to the local political subdivision offices like the provincial hall, municipal hall and the baranggay.
