The Nurse Deployment Project 2014 or NDP is a Department of Health (DOH) project

that aims to improve local health systems and support the Philippines attainment of
Universal Health Care or Kalusugang Pangkalahatan. Furthermore it aims to also give
employment opportunities to the growing number of unemployed nurses in the country.
The program coincides with one of the main goals of the Aquino Health Agenda (AHA).
Budget for employing nurses have doubled as sin taxes increased the DOHs budget
thus the Nurses Deployment Project will employ nurses instead of deploying them
contrary to that of RNheals.
Because of its implementing guidelines similarity, Nurse Deployment Project 2014 is
sometimes dubbed as RNheals 2014 or Nurses to Barrios Program. In fact, the NDP
is the successor of the Registered Nurse for Health Enhancement and Local Service
(RN Heals).

Difference with RNHeals


The four-year long run of RNheals program has been scrapped by the DOH in
exchange for the Nurse Deployment Project 2014. In RNheals, nurses are only
receiving Php 8,000 monthly stipend and PhilHealth and GSIS contributions. As for the
NDP, DOH will not only be employing the nurses (rather than only deploying them) and
will be receiving around Php 18,549 or Salary Grade 11 including all the benefits a DOH
employee receives.
