DOLE Claimed That There is Still High Demand for Pinoy Nurses Worldwide Other Than US and UK : Filipino Nurses News – Latest & Hottest News about Pinoy Nurses Worldwide

DOLE Claimed That There is Still High Demand for Pinoy Nurses Worldwide Other Than US and UK

Quick to respond to the news and defend the nursing profession, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) springs hope to many as they claimed that the global demand for locally-trained Pinoy nurses still remains high especially in Western countries with an aging population.

Labor Secretary Marianito Roque further claimed that it is not the because of dwindling demand for nurses abroad that is the culprit but rather the lack of adequate and necessary experience of our Nurses that actually prevents many of them from finding overseas employment.

Roque admitted, however, that the US is indeed putting a cap on the entry of Filipino nurses but he said this should not prevent Filipinos from looking at other possible market abroad for capable nurses.

Roque has been in talks with the Saudi Arabian government lately and declared that the Saudis alone is in need of 10,000 nurses for their public hospitals and they are looking for Filipino nurses to fill in these vacancies. He said there is also a growing demand for Filipino nurses in Canada as well as Australia.

Earlier it is reported that according to Dr. Leah Samaco-Paquiz, president of the Philippine Nursing Association (PNA) , the demand for Filipino nurses had “plateaued” in the US since 2006 because of the “visa retrogression” there.

“In the US, the quota for visas has been filled up resulting in delayed processing of visas with current efforts focused on 2006 accepted applicants,” Paquiz said.

She added that “many licensed nurses are now underemployed or unemployed as a result of changes of policy in destination countries, the current situation of oversupply and quality problems, among others.

The Labor chief rebuked these claims of the PNA that an oversupply of Filipino nurses has resulted from the declining demand for nurses in the United States and United Kingdom and reiterated that the other countries of the world still demand and prefer the caring hands of Pinoy nurses.

I hope DOLE will be good in protecting the nurses interest at this point in time.
