Three-term Senator, now Deputy Speaker, Loren Legarda welcomed the issuance of the Memorandum from the Office of the President that reverts the July 2020 circular of the Department of Budget Management (DBM) calling for an increase in the salary for entry level nurses. Said circular, however, effectively demoted senior nurses to a lower salary grade.
“I am glad to hear that nurses will finally receive what is due them. Although the DBM Circular 2020-4 has provided a higher salary grade for entry-level nurses from Salary Grade (SG) 11 to Salary Grade (SG) 15, it adversely affected the employment status of long-serving senior nurses,” Legarda said.

The wanton conversion of our lands has curtailed our ability to secure food and water and to adapt to extreme weather events. Our obsession with plastics has choked the life in our oceans and has posed risks to public health and safety. And our dependence on fossil fuels has continually warmed our planet, giving […]
