Philippine Government Still Optimistic About More Job Opportunities for Pinoy Nurses

The Philippine Information Agency (PIA) revealed that Pinoy nurses will still be very much in demand in the near future in developed countries.

This comes after the government helped the hiring of Filipino nurses in the Middles East which remains consistently high while Australia needs 200T Filipino nurses. Other countries that are opening up for Filipino nurses are Japan, Spain and Canada while deployment of Filipino nurses for the United Kingdom has dwindled.

The United States government, on the other hand, is fast tracking the nursing education for training their local nurses which might affect the number of deployment of Filipino nurses wanting to migrate there.  This is expected to be counteracted by two house bills pending in US Congress that will open the hiring of foreign nurses to address the shortage of healthcare professionals in the US.

US Labor Department estimates that they will need 500,000 nurses between 2016 until 2025 as there will be millions of elderly people within this period and training their local nurses will not be enough to attend to the needs of the growing aging population.

PIA has acknowledged news report that there are 400T Filipino nurses left without employment as deployment for nurses abroad has slowed.

This is why it is extremely important for the Philippines to uplift the quality of the nurses today especially in the communication skills as well as hands-on experience as these will be the edge of the Filipino nurses when they work overseas.

Filipino Healthcare Professionals are Integral Part of US Healthcare Workforce says Federal Communications Commission (FCC)

May 23, 2008 · Filed Under Insights, Work in the US · Comment 

During a press interview by the Filipino American Leadership Council (FALCON), Filipino doctors and nurses have been hailed by the FCC Commissioner Michael J. Copps as meeting the demands of the nationwide healthcare personnel shortage in the US.  He said that Filipino healthcare professionals are already an integral part of the US healthcare workforce especially in filling up the nurses shortage.

For a long time now, the Philippines is the number one source of foreign-trained nurses in the US and have made significant contributions to the American healthcare industry.  This is a welcome remark coming from an independent US government agency despite the bad remarks made to Filipino doctors by the TV show, Desperate Housewives,

It’s good to know that.  And I hope that this will continue.
