Rise in the Number of Pinoy Nurses taking the US NCLEX in 2007

May 6, 2008 · Filed Under In the news, Insights · Comment 

Have you been wondering how big are the stats now for Nursing profession? I am so I took on some research and here’s what I got.

The numbers have been released. Around 21,500 Pinoy nurses took the US NCLEX exams in 2007 compared to approximately 15,000 in 2006. That’s about 43% increase from 2006.

It’s no surprise actually. This interesting stats only shows the strong Filipino urge to solidify their claim for the American dream and the lure of the greener pasture there. With the measly salary here in the Philippines, more and more high school graduates go to nursing schools after to join the bandwagon.

Of course there are other developed countries now that demand for Pinoy nurses to come but majority will say they want to go to the US after their passing the Nursing Board here in the Philippines.

The numbers are expected to rise even more in the coming year since this year alone, CHED estimates that there will be around 500,000 high school students are gonna enter into various Nursing schools, colleges and universities nationwide.

Will give you more stats as we have it.

More news for you soon.
