THE NURSE IS IN (CAGAYAN VALLEY)
Thanks for this amazing project and somehow, I have an understanding of its mechanics which is primary health care approach. Being a public health nurse ever since, I have learned the skill of community health development leading to community and people empowerment. I implemented a project on community development right in my birthplace starting in 1985 and it is my honor to say that I was successful in transforming our wayward ethnic community into a "shangrila" so to speak because after less than a decade, the people became empowered by being self-reliant of their health.. The nursing students of Don Mariano Marcos State University in Batac, Ilocos Norte made Imugan as their community immersion for 4 years and I used to orient them of the Primary Health Care: Imugan Experience. This is my model of an empowered community whenever I lecture to community volunteer health and nutrition workers and professional health workers in our province in the different training.
It is so timely that we face a high unemployment rate of professional nurses due to the closure of foreign countries in hiring Filipino Nurses..We, the nursing leaders in the PNA, are so aware of the problem on a national scope but cannot do much. If I understand it right, your proposal on this project is the beginning for a light to shine among unemployed Filipino Nurses..The Philippine Government has this project called, Registered Nurses for Health Enhancement and Local Service (RNHeals) through the Dept. of Health, which has recruited 10,000 RNs throughout the country on a yearly basis..
As I understand it, we've got to start locally by region because of several limitations..If you would allow me to start in Region 2 (Cagayan Valley) then we can start it here then can cascade it to other regions later, not unless you have other pilot areas targeted for a start..
I am so excited to start this project as this is my other line of expertise. I was the PHC Coordinator of Nueva Vizcaya from 1985- 1995 and I have done networking with NGOs before like Plan International and Medical Ambassadors, Philippines for Health..Our PNA Chapter also i implemented a PHC project in 1992-1995 and I was in-charge of this. We adopted a poor barangay here in Bayombong and we hired a Registered Nurse to take charge of this project for the community to feel that the Nurses, through our Chapter, is IN the community...I look forward on the implementation of this project which I know will be welcomed by the local officials and the community..
Thank you very much and here's hoping for a successful and fruitful output of this noble project!!

Hi Dr. Letty,
I like this Project very much and am really hoping to launch it in your region, although we already have project studies in Cavite, Ilo-ilo and Negros.
I like your Imugan. Is there any place I can read about it? Has it been published anywhere, or in the PNA?
Similarly, I like the RN Heals. Pls let me know references to learn more about these because we are going to use these models, not only in the Philippines but in US and other parts of the world.
I know that you are busy in your upcoming trip/ conference, but let us continue on planning for this initiative. I have already posted the phases of Development in the Nursing Office Site, so let us work on the First Phase, while I learn more about these Imugan and RNheals.
Good luck to you and have a fruitful conference. You may continue to bring this initiatives wherever you are and pls do not forget to mention The Nurse is IN program and The Nursing Office as we further our collaboration for a healthier world.

Dear Maam Myrna,
I am also excited to start with this project. Reading about the phases, am sure that this is similar to the Primary Health Care (PHC) approach we started in the 1980s in the Dept. of Health. If I understand it right in Phase I is the inventory of nurses or manpower who will be involved and these would be the unemployed/displaced RNs. It is a relief on me that those discharged from the RNHeals Project could be accommodated in our Project not only in Region 2 but in the places you have mentioned.
The RNHeals is still on-going which is handled by DOH for the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals although there are still towns who lack manpower. This is the thing that I will work on this coming week so that we know where to recruit Nurses to be assigned..
We can use the PHC Experience I had in Barangay Imugan where the Masteral Students of Don Mariano Marcos State University Nursing Students used to come for their community immersion for straight 4 years...
Our model could be a private and public partnership to help us in the program implementation. There are NGOs willing to be a partner on this endeavor and with proper planning and coordination, we can successfully implement this project Maam. .I just need a detail if you have budgeted some amount for honorarium of Nurses who will be assigned in areas without health workers.. For Region 2, we can pilot it in Nueva Vizcaya then we can expand because I can coordinate with PNA Chapter Presidents in other regions and zones..
Actually, PNA has been an active partner as far as monitoring is concerned in the first Project NARS under DOLE but sad to say, the partnership became passive when it was handled by DOH and PNA participation was not maximized even on the national level because this has been expressed even by our National president, Gov. Noel Cadete.. Knowing this weakness, we, in The Nurse is In Project, can correct the weaknesses..
I have already listed down names of unemployed RNs who can participate in this project which can also help them financially. The stipend of the RNHeals Trainees is P8,000 per month for a period of one (1) year paid under the DOH funds. Recruitment is every year for almost 4 years now. I will try to download to you the concepts of RNHeals which is similar to the Rural Health Practice Program (RHPP) in 1976- 1980 and I was in that program under the DOH for six months while waiting for the result of our Licensure Examination. Our stipend that time was only P300.00 which involved MD graduates..
I am sure that if we present this Project to the Local officials and Nursing Leaders, they would surely accommodate this project for it would be helping our new RNs and the government in providing nursing services to our people. It's my honor to be a part of this project and rest assured that I would actively participate in this endeavor..
Your Partner in Development,
