Overseas Jobs for Pinoy Nurses are Dwindling as Demand for Filipino Nurses Slows Down Abroad

The Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) has announced that job opportunities for Filipino Nurses who wants to work abroad is getting slimmer by the day.

In a recent interview with PNA President Dr. Leah Samaco-Paquiz, such decline in demand for Filipino nurses is brought about by several factors which includes the changes in policy in destination countries, the oversupply situation and quality problems and doubts on Pinoy nurses.

The United States and United Kingdom are major destination for Filipino nurses in the past but these 2 countries are now closing their doors slowly to our nurses.  The US Visa retrogression and the UK Policy change on immigrants are to be blamed for this issue.  These countries will soon prefer to hire local nurses rather than recruit from overseas like the Philippines.

It’s a sad news for all nursing students out there who are still hopeful to leave the country as soon as they pass the local board and other series of tests in the nursing profession.  This would have a very debilitating impact on the local nursing profession very soon if these nurses can’t go anywhere then the where will these future nursing graduates work?

    i would like to ask for a definite assessment: is there still demand for Filipino nurses? Some say there isnt anymore,some say there is. Which is which? True, schools have commercialized the nursing profession to the pt that even unqualified people are able to take it and with some luck, pass themselves on as professional nurses. But we cant blame the public since the Phils has no job growth, people will bite at anything to get out of the country. Now, for the public’s satisfaction, is there still a demand? Thanks.

    Depends really on where you want to go outside the country. In the US, the demand is there but the immigration laws are restrictive at this point. In other countries, there is lesser demand compared to 2 years back and we have more nurses now to fill the spot.

    The government has admitted we have more supply of nurses than there is demand here and abroad. If we do not slow down on producing nurses, these graduates will be affected as well as those who have finished ahead of them.

    Sad to say that the quality of our nurses is not the same as before, it has something to do with the scandals happen during the examination and spread news not only nationwide but even the neighboring countries which has a large demand of nurses abroad, aside from that, the qualifications of the nursing students are not as strict to those studying in a reputable universities we should watch it.
