Title: Filipino Nurses Asked To Serve PH First

As Member of the House Committee on Health, I congratulate the newest batch of nurses who have just passed the licensure examinations.

While it is understandable that many of them will seek work opportunities overseas, I still appeal to them to at least serve the neighborhood where they reside or where they grew up. In other words, give back and pay it forward.

The hospitals are not the only places where our country needs nurses. The DSWD, cities, towns, and provinces need nurses for their disaster response units. The military and the police need nurses for their wounded personnel. The schools need nurses. Big companies also have in-house posts for nurses.

In reaction to the recent POEA disclosure of the need for 350 more Filipino nurses in Germany, I take this opportunity to remind the nurses to exercise care, caution, and common sense good judgment when evaluating overseas employment options and offers. Always verify and confirm the claims of the recruiters you meet.

Germany has high demand for health care professionals because of its ageing population. According to the Department of Labor, Germany needs over 220,000 new nurses until the year 2020.

Implementation of the Triple Win with Germany project began in July 2013. Germany also has “Triple Win” agreements with Serbia and with Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Triple Win applicants have to pay POEA processing fees consisting of: POEA processing fee of US$ 100.00, OWWA contribution of US$ 25.00, PhilHealth Contribution of P1,200.00, and PAG-IBIG HDMF contribution of P100.00. There are no fees for placement, preparation, and integration assistance.

Triple Win application is open to nurses:

• who are citizens of the Republic of the Philippines

• whose primary place of residence is the Republic of the Philippines

• who can provide certificates of their completed nurse’s training (four years of professional education; Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.)

• who have an Active Philippine Nursing License

• who have a minimum of two years of professional experience as a nurse in hospitals, rehabilitation centers and care institutions.

-who preferably have prior knowledge of the German language (technical vocabulary and everyday language – ideally Level B1 of the European Framework of Reference for Languages).

Proof of applicants’ professional qualifications is required. Members of other professional groups, such as nursing assistants, midwives or physiotherapists, are not eligible.

The prerequisite for working in Germany is Level B1 of the Europe Framework of Reference for Languages. Depending on prior knowledge the project finances relevant courses to achieve this language level.


Last June and July, 400 applicants were slated for Triple Win face-to-face interviews in Cebu (95 interviewees) and in Ortigas, Pasig City (305 applicants), according to the POEA.

As of last September 4, 2016 selected applicants numbered 584, the POEA said. Of the 584 nurses, 170 were deployed and 307 more were either undergoing training or awaiting training. From November 29 to December 2, 2016 some 27 nurses had Triple Win employer’s interview schedules, according to the POEA.
