Ilocos Norte ‘urgently’ needs nurses

The Ilocos Norte government, through the Public Employment Service Office (PESO), is urgently in need of 55 nurses to be deployed in its public hospitals.

For interested applicants, Ann Marie Lizette B. Atuan, provincial manager of PESO, announced Monday that the program is under the Ilocos Norte government’s “Sagip Nars Program.”

“An applicant must be a board passer and not employed in any hospital setting,” Atuan said in an interview Monday.

She added the application letter must be addressed to Governor Matthew Joseph Manotoc with a resume, a photocopy of the transcript of records, a certificate of board rating, a Professional Regulatory Commission card, and certificates of training and previous employment.
