Filipino Nurses News – Latest & Hottest News about Pinoy Nurses Worldwide

New Nursing Jobs Dwindles but Nurses are Now Paid More than Before

While reading along for new nursing jobs that may help our Filipino nurses find one, I stumble upon a very interesting news online.  Read this Pinoy nurses and maybe you will salivate on the prospects of getting to the US again.

According to the most recent data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average registered nurse (RN) salary is $66,530 in the United States. Despite the fact that the economy today is worse than it was during that same time period, this is $7,000 higher than the average nursing salary five years ago .

This is good news for those interested in healthcare professions as it shows that healthcare is fairly recession proof although the demand for nurses really seems to plateau lately.  While the bad economy in the US seems to have affected the majority of professions, other medical fields, aside from nursing, are also doing well.

What should new registered nurses do when they can’t find jobs?

What is happening to the nursing profession worldwide?

Only a few years ago, many nursing students had multiple job offers before they graduated. But now only about one of every five graduates gets a job right away.

However, in the United States and much of North America, many industry experts believe that a nursing shortage looms on the horizon. This is because the aging population continues to grow and healthcare reform will expand coverage to more than 30 million previously uninsured people and an expected shortage of physicians will shift more work onto nurses.

In addition, about 40 percent of registered nurses or RNs in the US are over age 50. It is expected that when the economy turns around, many will retire.  The long-term forecast may be favorable, but new graduates are living in the present, and they’re faced with a tough job market. Hospital jobs – the traditional first step in a nursing career – are scarce.

So what can you do as a new nurse?  Experts believe that Read more

Job Opening for Nurses in the US & Canada???

Before you get excited, this post is not about any job openings in the US or Canada.  This post is about a reflection of the past which begs the question “”Whatever happen to the million-dollar dream of working as a Filipino nurse in the US and Canada?”.

This need for health workers in North America has sparked a frenzy of what I call “expectators” from the Philippines when we see this as our miracle job to alleviate ourselves from the chin-deep poverty issues.  I was gasping for air just like you.

Most people view this as their target in life.  Survive college whatever it takes, stick with nursing.  The work your ass off and invest your money in getting that PRC certificate to show the world that hey, I am a board passer in the Philippines. So now what?  Read more
