SAN FRANCISCO – Filipino nurses joined a protest in front of the headquarters of one of the biggest health insurance providers in the country.

Their message: stop raising rates, especially when people can barely afford health care.

Members of the California Nurses Association held a picket in front of Blue Shield’s San Francisco office, protesting the company’s plan to spike health care coverage rates up to 59% for individuals.

They said out of all the major insurers, Blue Shield is the only one that refuses to delay premium increases.

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Feb. 13, 2011) – Good news for Filipino nurses – a company in the oil-rich state of Dubai is now hiring at least 200 nurses to work in the United Arab Emirates.

Atallah Habib, of the Al Hilal Private Nursing and Medical Services based in Dubai, said they will still need hundreds of nurses and medical support staff this year because of the huge demand for Filipino nurses.

He said Filipino nurses are known for their skills and honesty and the most hardworking in Dubai. “Filipino nurses are really good because they are hardworking and honest and really good in the job and that’s why we are getting more and more Filipino nurses,” Habib, who recently visited Zamboanga City, told the Mindanao Examiner.

His company employs many Filipino nurses and supplies various hospital and private homes in the UAE. He said medical institutions in the Middle East are also sourcing its nursing staff from his company.

The company’s assistant manager Nemia Macabugao, also a Filipino nurse, said they are also hiring Muslim nurses from Mindanao. “There is a lot of opportunity for Filipino nurses because the demand for Filipino nurses is huge. We are known to be hardworking and honest and that’s what makes Filipino nurses the best for the job,” she said.

It needs to be pointed out that the project is a measure that has been taken out by the country to meet its targets regarding the mandate for providing health care and social services to the citizens of Philippines. People belonging to poorer communities will be the ones, who will benefit the most out of the initiative.

What's the difference between an MSN and a MAN?

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed. One advantage of subscribing to RSS feeds is that you don't have to constantly re-visit this site to check for updates within specific sections you might be interested in because your browser or Feed reader will do this for you automatically on a regular basis plus you can even get email notification.

Master's degree programs in nursing in the US are mostly about specialization. Majority of MSN's in US universities are actually training programs for two different groups of specialization: advanced practice nursing, and non-advanced practice nursing. Advanced practice nursing is an umbrella term used by Boards of Nursing in the US for Nurse Practitioners, Clinical Nurse Specialists, Certified Nurse Midwives, and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists. Specific MSN programs are aimed at training nurses for these roles.

On the other hand, there are also MSN programs that train nurses in non-advanced practice nursing fields such as nursing education, administration, informatics, and newer Clinical Nurse Leader role.

That being said, I doubt if a fresh hire from the Philippines, even with an MSN degree, will have enough credibility and background experience to function in the roles I have described above in the US health care setting. I just don't see a US employer giving credit to a Filipino nurse with an MSN degree especially when US health care facilities are hiring foreign nurses in entry-level RN positions only.

i think MAN is more applicable for those who want to be clinical instructors or professors... MSN i think is more useful in a hospital setting... there are so many schools now that offer MAN.. UERM in sta mesa offers MSN and you can choose if you want the thesis or non thesis tract...
