Ascent: Paving the Way for Filipino Nurses to Realize their Dream

According to statistics, Filipino nurses are very active in looking for better opportunities in the US. In fact, even as early as high school, many are set to make nursing their ticket out of the country and for some, out of poverty. 

However, earning one’s nursing degree and acquiring their Philippine license are just some of the first few steps before they realize their dream. Aside from having the required work experience, there are additional certifications and licenses needed to be able to practice in the US. Aside from investing time and effort, there is also a substantial amount of money needed to facilitate and complete the requirements. 

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. Being a seasoned professional in the Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) sector who managed and led companies connected to different verticals including healthcare, he saw the opportunity to bridge the gap recognizing that there are hundreds of thousands of nurses needed in the US. 

“The missing piece is the US license, and this is where we come in,” Macapagal pointed out. A 100% Filipino-owned and managed recruitment, consulting, and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) company, Ascent is making it possible for Philippine-registered nurses to turn this dream into reality. 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.

Through the expertise of the company’s executive team, headed by Macapagal, Ascent is able to design a product that can shoulder qualified Filipino nurses to undergo the process and required tests that will allow them to acquire their 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 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. 

Ascent 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. 

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.

Nevertheless, 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. 

If you want to learn more about Ascent and how to be part of their nursing pool, visit or call 534-0033.

DIVA NBC Media Cook-Off Challenge Experience

Got so excited and  surprised to receive an invite to join the cook-off challenge for the media to be held at the Kamia 1 & 2 Garden Wing, EDSA Shangri-la Hotel in Mandaluyong, this was last April 20.

At first I was a bit skeptical to join, thinking what would I cook in the challenge, how do I plate my dish, and so many other concerns.

But on the day of the event, ‘am so glad I did join the challenge, together with my daughter, Sam, we had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the cooking challenge.  It was an unforgettable experience for us.

First off, we were treated to a heavy breakfast buffet of burgers, fries, overflowing coffee, tea and desserts!

They even gave us our own Chef’s hat and apron also part of the tokens given.  Awesome! Isn’t it J  ‘Am glad I got to experience this with Sam.

Just like “My Kitchen Rules”, the most popular cooking show in Australia, the media/blogger participants were given a chance to show their skills in cooking like chef-quality dishes. We were divided into 3 groups, and I must say I love our group – Team 1.

Beat the Heat, Protect Your Skin and Avoid These Summer Skincare Mistakes

This coming summer is looking to be a hot one, which means many of us will likely head to the beach to cool off. If you're not careful, however, you could get more than just sand, sea, and sun. 

Protect your skin against the sweltering heat this summer by being prepared and informed. Start by getting to know and avoiding these all too common summer skincare mistakes. Neglecting Proper Sunscreen Use. 
Sunscreen should be an important part of your summer skincare routine, but many of us do away with it for various reasons. For some, it's expensive, it doesn't feel good on the skin, or it's not practical if you're not planning to stay under the sun for a long time. 

First off, not all sunscreen lotions are expensive. 
These may be a bit pricier compared to ordinary lotions, but the purchase is worth it. Many sunscreens on the market are also formulated for quick skin absorption, which does away with the sticky residual feeling. Dermplus sunscreens, for example, provide excellent skin protection from the sun, features a quick absorb formula, and comes in different variants and sizes depending on your need and skin type. 

One important thing many people don't know is that you can get sunburn even when indoors. UV light can penetrate through glass windows, which means even if you are at home or in the office and you happen to be next to a window, you still are exposed. Make it a habit to use Dermplus to all exposed areas of the body every day, especially this summer. 

Ignoring Dead Skin Cells 
The sun and sand may feel good on your feet, but these can damage the skin. Be sure to exfoliate your skin before hitting the beach. Removing the dead skin cells allow for the growth of new, healthy cells, which makes the skin smoother and feeling softer. Exfoliation also allows the sunblock and other skincare products to be more effective, as it can go deeper into the skin. 

Relying on Clothes Alone for Sun Protection 
Our summer outfits are often light, airy, and colorful. This, however, could mean your skin (even the non-exposed parts) does not get enough protection. The sando, the sun dress, or that light summery polo shirt provide very little protection against the sun. For this, it's best to sunscreen it up all over, and maybe even getting clothes with built-in sun protection. 

Getting Dehydrated 
Dehydration not only causes headaches and extreme thirst, it also causes the skin to dry out. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water or non-sugary, non-caffeinated beverages. This balances the body and skin's moisture levels. 

Ignoring that Sunburn 
If you really can't stay away from the heat and the sun for a long time, be sure to soothe the skin as soon as possible. The Dermplus Aftersun Hydrating Body Gel is very effective in soothing the skin, reducing inflammation and redness, and preventing peeling. The sooner you deal with the sun damage on the skin, the better. Make this summer fun and safe not just for the family or the barkada, but for your skin as well.

About Dermplus : Dermplus is a quality brand by JLC Miller & Co. Inc. The product line includes different sunscreen variants as well as moisturizing and cooling gels. JLC Miller & Co. Inc. is an ISO-certified company that created for a number of trusted hair and skincare products.

When doctors are in good shape

We like our dentists to have a nice set of teeth, and our fashion consultants to be well-dressed. In the same way, studies show that we are more likely to trust our doctors if they are in a good shape themselves.

Because of this, doctors often face enormous pressure to serve as the epitome of wellness. Drs. Rico Donato and Joel Lutana, both graduates of the rapid weight loss and wellness solution called Cohen’s Lifestyle Program, know this too well.

Obesity and illness
Dr. Rico, an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Head and Neck surgeon, used to weigh 257.4 lbs. The 44 year-old father of three also suffered from hypertension, and was diagnosed to be borderline high blood sugar. Her wife, who is also a doctor, was naturally alarmed.

Meanwhile, Dr. Joel, 43, weighed 206.8 lbs. Aside from noting that he did not look pleasant, the anesthesiologist shared why his excess weight concerned him, “I have a family history of hypertension diabetes and heart disease.”

Both attempted to lose weight. Dr. Rico took slimming pills and went to the gym with a trainer, while Dr. Joel tried “almost all fad diets.” These all failed.

The Cohen program
Upon the prodding of his wife, Dr. Rico signed up for the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program. Developed by Dr. Rami Cohen, an international specialist renowned for his research on hormones involved in obesity and weight loss, the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program encourages people battling the bulge to adopt a new lifestyle.

Based on each client’s unique blood profile, the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre prepares a personalized eating plan and teaches clients the right eating and sleeping habits to optimize the performance of the organs vital for metabolic processes. Without requiring exercise, injection, or intake of pills, the program delivers fast results, with clients averaging a loss of up to 8 to 10 lbs a month.

“It is different because it trains you to act differently towards food, how to eat healthy and not overindulge or binge. That is what distinguishes it from fad diets – you can maintain a healthy lifestyle after the program,” explains Dr. Rico, who lost 77 lbs 8 months into the program.

A healthy healer
Like Dr. Rico, Dr. Joel credits Cohen for his transformation from an overweight doctor, to a healthy healer. He lost 57.2 lbs in the course of 4 months, and is keen on dropping more.

Dr. Rico Donato lost 77 lbs 8 months into the Cohen program

 “I am happy and proud with the results,” he said, adding, “The likelihood of me inheriting my family history of illness is now lower.”

Dr. Joel also thanks the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program for instilling in him a strong sense of self-control and discipline, revealing that while going through it was difficult at first, seeing the results was inspiring: “Once my clothes became bigger because I was getting smaller, that motivated me to continue.”

Dr. Joel Lutana lost 57.2 lbs in the course of 4 months.

For his part, Dr. Rico shares that after the program, his blood pressure and blood sugar levels have normalized, allowing him to stop taking any medication. In addition, he now enjoys a more active life. He shares, “I have more energy now and doing sports is lighter.” And a great bonus is that his friends and loved ones say he looks ten years younger.

Now in a better shape to serve the sick, Dr. Rico and Dr. Joel both plan on recommending the program to their own patients who are struggling with their weight. After all, they know that it works!
