Because of the current competitive healthcare job market worldwide, more and more nursing students and current professionals are pursuing after their bachelors’ degrees with master’s programs for nursing to become more attractive to prospective employers. The strategy of course is that after they completed these courses of study, these nursing professionals can become qualified for high-paying positions.

Now improved bachelor’s nursing program and curriculum at top schools in the world are being created to help students and working registered nurses (RNs) obtain skills that are required by managerial roles at hospitals and primary care offices. Some top schools in the US, for example, even launched this course of study through distance learning programs and online campus in order to help enrollees further their education without having to quit their jobs.  This will get them their nursing degrees online.

Those who wish to take on more responsibilities in health-related work environments may also want to consider enrolling in a master’s program in nursing administration. These degrees are often available to students via online education and as accelerated programs.

In fact, within the next eight years, US government analysts shows that the employment of these professionals will increase by 22%, and this industry will create an estimated 581,500 new jobs nationwide.  The Japanese government also has similar pressures from its aging population and will require more nurses within the next 5 years.

Will this be good for the Filipino nurses seeking jobs?  Of course, if we realize this today that other countries are making their nurses more competitive not just a bachelors degree in nursing but a masters on the side, then we should also prepare our nurses here in Manila.  Updating our curriculum to address the competitive landscape abroad is the first step.

And I believe that the more management nurses we train and export to various part of the globe, the more chances of Pinoy nurses to work overseas as the world healthcare industry will realize we are capable professionals in this field.
