MANILA, Philippines--The number of Filipino nurses seeking work in the United States from January to September 2007 has dramatically increased by almost 50 percent, according to the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP).

Alex Aguilar, TUCP spokesperson, said that 15,083 Philippine-educated nurses took the eligibility test of the US National Council of State Boards of Nursing Inc. (NCSBN).

This represents an increase of 4,793 (or 47 percent) from the 10,290 Filipino nurses who took the NCLEX (not including repeaters) in the same nine-month period in 2006, according to Aguilar.

Citing NCSBN statistics, Aguilar said those who took the NCLEX in the first nine months of 2007 just about matched the 15,171 Filipino nurses who braved the examination for the whole of 2006.

The NCLEX, or National Council Licensure Examination, is the final step in the nurse eligibility process in the United States—the equivalent of the Philippines' nursing licensure test.
