Nursing is the Top Choice for Enrollees this Year – CHED : Filipino Nurses News – Latest & Hottest News about Pinoy Nurses Worldwide

Nursing is the Top Choice for Enrollees this Year – CHED

· Filed Under In the news, Insights, Work in Asia 

It was reported by Commission on Higher Education (CHED) that their forecast suggests Nursing to be the top choice for new enrollees this year going to colleges and universities. This is not a surprising given the fact that many Pinoy students today still view nursing as their ticket to work outside the country for more money.

In fact, I know of some medical doctors, dentists and vets who have shifted to becoming a nurse and moving to the US and Europe.

The forecast is made despite the growing nursing graduates in the country which can lead to overproduction in a few years time. This seems to be telling us that, in the end, money is indeed a major motivator for our nursing students.

I just hope that there will be more work for them here in the Philippines while they wait for their VISAs to go out of the country. I also hope that there will be no more blunders in the field of nursing so that the demand outside will continue to grow to accommodate this growing nursing graduates.

Here is the list in the CHED forecast:

1. Nursing
2. Hotel and Restaurant Mgt.
3. Computer Science
4. Criminology
5. Information Technology
6. Accountancy
7. Management
8. Elementary Education
9. English Education
10. Electronics and Comm. Engineering
11. Marine Transportation
12. Computer Engineering
