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

Almost Half a Million Registered Nurses Without Jobs in the Philippines

September 1, 2008 · Filed Under In the news, Insights · Comment 

The Philippine Regulation Commission (PRC) admitted recently that there are about 400,000 Registered Nurses in the country today that are jobless – that’s almost half a million people jobless! (Is this oversupply or what?)

PRC commissioner Ruth Padilla states there is not enough demand locally for our Pinoy nurses and only about 60,000 posts are currently occupied in both private and public sectors.

The demand for nurses has continued to decline over the past month and the government is trying very hard to bring back more demands from foreign countries including even our ASEAN neighbors.  The PRC boasted that our registered nurses are still far more better in qualifications when compared to their ASEAN counterparts hence the potential for sourcing in Asia is a welcome opportunity.

But soon other countries are expected to rise as a competitor to the Pinoy registered nurses qualification.  It’s not a matter of if but when this will happen.  In the light of this, the government is pushing for more updated education and rigid training for all nursing graduates to keep up with the pace of the modern times and nursing requirements worldwide.
