Contractual work: Nurses victims of DOH ‘endo’

/ 07:22 AM January 14, 2018

Nurses under the Department of Health’s (DOH) nurse deployment program have appealed to the agency to create plantilla positions for nurses and health professionals.

In a forum in Quezon City, Ang Nars party-list revealed that 12,000 out of 24,000 nurses might lose their jobs because of budget limitations for the program.

“Half of the nurses under the program will lose their jobs,” said Leah Paquiz, Ang Nars representative.
