  • Why do Nurses need to consider applying to New Enga Provincial Hospital? 

The answer to this question lies with New Enga’s ground breaking potential. As the largest and most advanced healthcare facility in Papua New Guinea, boasting 300 beds spread across various essential healthcare departments, New Enga Provincial Hospital stands at the forefront of innovation and excellence in the region. 

This state-of-the-art hospital is an ideal environment for Filipino Nurses seeking international growth and opportunities, particularly for those of you who are pursuing short-term assignments abroad or those who are seeking to kickstart their overseas journey while aiming to gain financial stability. Furthermore, the experience you will gain at New Enga Provincial Hospital will serve as a valuable asset, especially for nurses aspiring to work in other overseas countries, particularly countries supported by the United Nations. Employment in a UN-supported nation will undoubtedly open doors to further international opportunities and career advancement.

One more thing to consider is the streamlined registration process. Papua New Guinea’s healthcare board adds more value and allure to the offer, with no licensure exams, extra training, or tortuous verification procedures required. The ease in the registration process expedites the transition for nurses, allowing you to quickly adapt to your new environment. Not only that, you will also have the chance to be part of the inaugural team at this newly established healthcare facility. You will have the unique opportunity to shape its culture, practices, and standards from the ground up. As part of the pioneer batch, you will have a big role and significant influence in molding the direction of this institution’s healthcare management system.

  • Why do Physicians need to consider applying to New Enga Provincial Hospital? 

In addition to what was mentioned earlier, it's worth noting that opportunities for Filipino Physicians to work abroad are exceedingly rare. The inadequacy of overseas opportunities for Filipino Physicians isn’t due to low demand but rather due to the high and rigorous qualifications and requirements levied by many countries. But unlike any other, New Enga Provincial Hospital offers a promising proposition. They will only require Diplomate Level Physicians to have at least 3 – 5 years of experience in their desired area and some teaching experience to qualify. Additional training, further education, or licensure exams will not be necessary. Physicians can also anticipate deployment to New Enga Provincial Hospital in as fast as 2 to 3 months. This could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for professionals who wish to broaden their horizons and experiences beyond the confines of their homeland. 

Moreover, New Enga Provincial Hospital offers a pathway to a more stable and secure employment. Unlike the unpredictable nature of earnings in the Philippines, where a physician’s compensation is reliant on the fluctuating number of patients and clinic arrangements, the compensation structure at New Enga Provincial Hospital ensures financial stability regardless of the patients' volume. By removing the financial uncertainties associated with patient-driven earnings, New Enga Provincial Hospital cultivates an environment conducive to long-term career development and personal fulfillment.

  • How much is the Monthly Net Salary?

 At New Enga Provincial Hospital, not only will you have the opportunity to work in a cutting-edge and forward-thinking healthcare facility, but you'll also enjoy an enticing compensation and salary package. The hospital is committed to providing both Nurses and Physicians with competitive salaries tailored to their expertise and experience. By offering fair compensation, New Enga Provincial Hospital expresses its dedication in attracting and retaining the best talents for its team. 

To address the question at hand, the monthly net salary for Nurses ranges from 2,845.50 to 3,603.92 PGK, approximately equivalent to ~41,828.85 to 52,977.62 PHP.

For Physicians, the monthly net salary ranges from 19,333.33 to 26,583.33 PGK, approximately equivalent to ~284,199.95 to 390,774.95 PHP.

Despite already offering competitive salary packages, the ABBA team, in collaboration with New Enga Provincial Hospital, remains committed to continuously improving these compensation offerings.

  • How safe is it in the facility?

Just like in any institution, ensuring employee safety is a paramount priority. At New Enga Provincial Hospital, this commitment to safety is deeply ingrained. Nurses and Physicians can expect a secure environment and comprehensive surveillance systems throughout the whole facility. In addition to robust security measures, you will have access to essential amenities within the facility itself. Well, what can we say? From supermarkets and stores to entertainment centers, New Enga already provided you with everything necessary for comfortable living. This provision minimizes the need for you to leave the premises for daily essentials or recreational activities, further enhancing your safety and convenience. Living in this self-sufficient environment you can surely carry out your duties with peace of mind, knowing that your safety and well-being are paramount considerations.

  • What can Nurses expect from the qualifying test during the recruitment trip? 

When you prepare for the qualifying test during the recruitment trip, you can expect a straightforward process designed to assess your competency and suitability for employment at New Enga Provincial Hospital. The qualifying test typically consists of a multiple-choice format that spans around 2 hours. It mainly covers two areas: general nursing knowledge and the specialized area of the examiners.

Importantly, it's essential to note that the qualifying exam is administered solely by New Enga Provincial Hospital and is not a licensure exam mandated by Papua New Guinea's healthcare board.
