ANNOUNCEMENT (April 12, 2011)
Update from nildaRN

The Cardio-Renal and Cardio-Pulmo Nurse Training Programs at HEART Foundation-Philippine Heart Center was POSTPONED INDEFINITELY.

The following is an excerpt from the e-mail sent by HEART Foundation on April 7, 2011:

“We thank you for being one of those who believe in our commitment to advance the cause of nursing and allied professions in cooperation with the Philippine Heart Center (PHC) through the holding of post graduate seminars and trainings using the facilities of the Hospital.

However, as of late, we were informed that PHC, being a government hospital, has other equally important missions requiring that would require the use of the same facilities where the Foundation holds its seminars and trainings that would result in possible overlapping of the use thereof.

It is in view thereof that we were left with no option but to postpone indefinitely the cardio-renal and cardio-pulmonary training for nurses which should have otherwise started on May 9, 2011 until we could find an equally conducive venue for the purpose.”
