MANILA, Philippines ?Close to 60,000 nurses have applied for the Department of Health?s nurses deployment program, Health Secretary Enrique Ona said Friday.

The department?s Registered Nurses for Health Enhancement And Local Service (RN Heals) has so far attracted 57,996 applicants willing to be sent to impoverished and far-flung communities in the country, said Ona.

But the program, launched on January 17, only needs 10,000 nurses to serve 1,221 rural and unserved or underserved communities, he said.

Eastern Visayas region is set to receive 1,149 nurses, 909 for the Bicol region, and 765 for Western Visayas, he said.

The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao will have 723 nurses and 713 for the Calabarzon region, Ona said.

Applicants from municipalities covered by the Health Facilities Enhancement Program of the DoH and the Conditional Cash Transfer or the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program of the DSWD will be prioritized.

A volunteer nurse will receive about P10,000 in allowance per month.
