Filipino MD Picks Life As Nurse in U.S.

The hospital lobby is a blur of surgical scrubs as a shift-change approaches. But when Elmer Jacinto slips in early in pressed whites and sneakers, he draws barely a glance from the guard behind the security desk.

It's 2:15 p.m. and soon he'll begin preparing IV drips and checking temperatures, tasks assigned to an entry-level nurse. "So much to learn," says the self-deprecating bachelor with the lilting accent. Except for the fact that he's one of only two male nurses on the floor at St. Vincent's Midtown Hospital, he's just one of the girls, co-workers say.

Well, here anyway.

But a world away, in his native Philippines, Jacinto remains at the center of a roiling controversy — a sellout to his critics, a paragon of hard work and admirable ambition to his supporters.

Once upon a time, Elmer Jacinto was his nation's most promising young doctor. But doctors in the Philippines are not well paid, and so he boarded a plane to America.

To make more money. To become ... a nurse.

It hasn't worked out exactly as he had expected. Life in New York has proved exhausting and full of unforeseen pitfalls. And back home, many of his countrymen still find his choice a difficult one to accept, because the parable of Elmer Jacinto raises grim doubts about their future.

"Jacinto encapsulates perfectly the country's fundamental question today," one Filipino newspaper columnist opined. "Namely, why should anyone want to stay in it?"


When Elmer Jacinto graduated high school, the island of Basilan offered limited choices.

On Basilan, where dusty farming towns press up against thick tropical jungle, electricity is a sometimes event. Telephone lines deposit calls at dead-ends. Both problems are blamed on the Abu Sayyaf, a Muslim extremist group with an outsized reputation for violence.

So when Jacinto sat down with his father, a school teacher, on a spring night eight years ago to parse his prospects in the glow of kerosene, they set aside talk of dreams to examine reality.

"There is money in nursing," the older man counseled.

Jacinto finished at the top of a nursing school class of 250, and found work at the local hospital before leaving for a better-paying job in the city. In hindsight, the move seemed fated. Not long after, Abu Sayyaf guerrillas stormed the hospital, taking nurses as hostages. One of Jacinto's former co-workers was killed during a shootout with Filipino soldiers.

But in Manila, Jacinto pushed ahead, soon enrolling in medical school. For the second time, he rose to the top of his class, then joined 1,800 other aspiring doctors from around the country to take the national medical exam.

When the scores were released, Our Lady of Fatima University proudly hung a banner over its doorway to herald the results. Its valedictorian, Elmer Jacinto, was the No. 1 young doctor in the nation.

Budek comments: He was may prof during our NCM class he really gives his best when it comes to teaching. He explains things carefully and is always prepared for his lectures. He is the only one who uses projector + powerpoint in all of his lectures in Fatima. No one did that [ except in the review class ]

During day 1 pinagalitan ako nito kasi naghikab ako sa klase nya hahahaha. Napahiya ako nun. Nabwisit agad ako sa kanya sinumpa ko si sir elmer. Pero he befriended me later on, bumawi. Natuwa siya kasi my elder sister na 2nd courser was my classmate and di sha makapaniwala. May dedication panga yung mga exams nya when he checks it. Bihira lang yung ganun. kakaiba talaga he really loves his job.

My favorite student sha during those times eh, it was Lawrence Gutierrez. He is fond of the gutierrez brothers. Amaze na amaze sha sa mga magkakapatid sa classroom kaya amaze din sha samin ng kapatid ko. Lawrence that time was the top of the class. He really dominates MS with his phenomenal scores.

Hayyy... that was college days... :)
