Ascent offers BPO jobs, helps acquire US license for Filipino nurses

By Maricel Burgonio/mb.com.ph – As more Filipino nurses are still actively looking for better opportunities in the US, a homegrown recruitment, consulting and business-process outsourcing (BPO) firm is offering to undergo the process and required tests that will allow them to acquire their US license.

Raphael Macapagal, President and CEO of Ascent, shared that he was moved with what he saw before that there are 2,000 registered nurses in the Philippines who do not have work.

Ascent has designed a product that can shoulder the process and required tests for the qualified Filipino nurses to acquire US license.

Through their partners, they will be also be able to provide free review until their licensure exam plus, provide them employment so they no longer need to worry about their source of income.

“This is a unique scheme and we are happy to pioneer and to be able to help our skilled and deserving Filipino nurses. Through the plan that we designed, all they need to worry about is passing the exam,” he stressed.

He said that there are hundreds of thousands of nurses needed in the US.

Aside from having the required work experience, there are additional certifications and licenses needed to be able to practice in the US.

There is also a substantial amount of money needed to facilitate and complete the requirements.

With Ascent, it will be processing the papers on behalf of the applicants. Simultaneously, they will be employed in one of Ascent’s partner BPOs where they will be trained and gain experience.

Established in 2015, Ascent is making it its advocacy to not only pave the way for our Filipino nurses to achieve their goal of working in the US but also hoping that, in the process, be able to encourage them to choose to stay in the Philippines. Ascent believes in the value of being with your family is more precious than any money.

He explained that they hope to address and correct the misconception connected to nurses working in the BPOs.

Some have the notion that working in the BPO is not doing nursing work.

In reality, their scope of work is highly related to healthcare. They do clinical work, only remotely. After the Filipino nurses gain their US license, Ascent requires them to work with their partner organizations for two years.

“Being a US registered nurse will definitely give them a premium and this will reflect on their salary when they go and work with our partner organizations. We hope that through this effort we can convince them that there is an opportunity here in the Philippines. They don’t need to leave. Here, they can experience working in the US with a premium salary without having to leave their family and loved ones. There are opportunities in the Philippines,” he said.

Macapagal added, if after two years they will choose to leave and work abroad, Ascent will also help them with opportunities through their connections in the US.
