To address the surplus of inexperienced nurses in the Philippines, the government launched a project called "RN HEALS" or Registered Nurses for Health Enhancement and Local Service.
The RN HEALS Project will be needing 10,000 registered nurses to help deliver health care services. These nurses who will be deployed in all regions and provinces nationwide will receive a monthly allowance of 8,000 pesos. The Local Government Unit is also expected to provide modes of board and lodging for these community-based volunteer nurses.
