Fewer Pinoy nursing grads seeking jobs in the US

The number of Filipino nursing graduates aspiring to practice their profession in the United States plummeted by almost 52% in the first quarter of 2011, according to a lawmaker.

Only 1,454 Filipino nursing graduates took the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) from January-March this year compared to 3,024 graduates in the same period last year, said Rep. Arnel Ty of party-list Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers Association (LPGMA).

According to Ty, the number of Filipino nursing graduates taking the NCLEX for the first time indicates how many are trying to enter the profession in the US.

NCLEX is a licensure exams administered by the US National Council of State Boards of Nursing (USNCSBN).

Citing USNCSBN statistics, Ty said that in 2010, the number of Filipino nursing graduates who took the NCLEX for the first time dropped by 37 percent to 9,789 compared to 15,382 in 2009.

The statistics has prompted Ty to file a bill seeking to establish a special jobs plan for the country’s growing number of unemployed and underemployed nurses.

The jobs plan would be an expanded version of Nurses Assigned in Rural Service (NARS), the short-lived Philippine government’s project that enlisted 10,000 nurses to improve healthcare services in the country’s 1,000 poorest municipalities, according to House Bill 4582.

Ty said nurses now comprise the country’s second-largest group of professionals following teachers. Nurses are also the nation’s biggest group of unemployed skilled workers.

Drinking Bangus "Milkfish" bile Can Cure Cancer

MANILA, Philippines – Fourteen-year old Angeli Joyce Dy is not your typical teenager who whiles away her time shopping in malls. At 13, she’s pouring over thick science books and spending her summer at the laboratory of the University of the Philippines (UP) Institute of Biology, testing the anti-cancer, anti-bacterial properties from the bile of the milkfish (bangus).

Unlike most girls her age, Angeli, an incoming third year high school junior at the Capiz National High School, has been going back and forth to the regional office of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) in Capiz and SIFDEC library in Iloilo to make an in-depth and extensive research on her subject.

Angeli has stumbled upon an existing study on the potential anti-cancer properties of the milkfish bile and wanted to pursue this because in her own words “I want to help contribute in finding a cure to a widespread and global disease such as cancer.”

Her study recently took center stage when Angeli received the second special award from the American Association for Clinical Chemistry for her research project, “Cytotoxicity Against Human Lung (A549) and Colon (HCT116) Carcinomas, Antioxidant and Anti-Bacterial properties of Milkfish (Chanos chanos Forsskal) Bile” at the recently-concluded Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Reno, Nevada.

Aside from Angeli, three other young students’ works were recognized at the prestigious Intel-ISEF, considered by many around the world as the High School “Nobel Prize”.

Sixteen-year old Jovani Tomale, a fourth year high school from the Davao City National High School in Davao del Sur, also took a second special award from the American Statistical Association for his mathematical models for the gender determination of Philippine eagles.

Tomale is an incoming freshman at the Ateneo de Davao.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) has warned overseas Filipino workers against illegal recruiters pretending to represent a new hotel in Macau.

According to the DFA statement, the Galaxy Entertainment Group, the operator of a large, new hotel in Macau, wrote to the Philippine Consulate to report cases of fraud involving the "recruitment of workers by individuals claiming to be appointed agents of the entertainment group."

Galaxy reported that some illegal recruiters, using their company's name, entice OFWs with a promise of a good job in the hotel.

However, Galaxy said their only authorized agent in the Philippines is IKON Solutions Asia, Inc.

MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine embassy in Syria yesterday reported that there were no Filipinos who died or were hurt in the Middle East country.

There had been reports that two Filipino household service workers were hit by stray bullets during street demonstrations on April 29.

The two Filipinos were allegedly sent by their employers to purchase goods from a store.

In a report to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Philippine Ambassador to Syria Wifredo Cuyugan said there had been inconsistencies in the reports because there were no demonstrations held in Damascus that day.

“The embassy contacted its area coordinators, its volunteers from the Filipino community and other sources in Syria to verify the report. These sources all informed the embassy that no such incident happened,” Cuyugan said.

“In addition, there are inconsistencies in the alleged report. There were no demonstrations in Damascus on April 29.

Filed Under: Nursing matters


AS COMMON as it was compelling, the idea of Filipinos studying nursing to take up successful employment here and abroad was something that captured the aspirations of a country. In many ways, nursing was a good fit for us Filipinos. It harnessed the inherent hospitality and the boundless compassion our people possess, which combined with what was then a dearth of available nurses in countries such as the United States and Japan. It seemed like there was no limit to the demand for Filipino nurses.

Nursing was the best chance to land a job, the best chance to find a rewarding occupation. Lured by this bright, beckoning promise, young Filipinos flocked to nursing schools; and more nursing schools sprouted to meet the suddenly exploding demand.

But this is no longer the case today. Just like computer programming, which came after it, nursing is no longer the surefire route to employment that it was before. The requirements put forth by the foreign countries seeking nurses have grown draconian, making it more difficult for even the best Filipino nurses to find jobs in those faraway lands. And the global demand for nurses has diminished considerably; as a result, the number of Filipino nursing graduates finding choice jobs abroad has shrunk at almost alarming rates.

Migrant welfare group: Nurses are not commodities

By JC BELLO RUIZ

MANILA, Philippines — A migrant workers' welfare group said Friday Filipino nurses should be produced not only for purposes of employment abroad but more importantly, to enhance the domestic health care system.

Migrante International was reacting to the statement of Health Secretary Enrique Ona discouraging incoming students from taking up nursing because of the “decline in the demand for Filipino nurses abroad.”

Ona's statement was "ill-advised, irresponsible and insensitive to the plight of the domestic health care system," said Garry Martinez, chairperson of the group.

“Why discourage students from taking up nursing when we barely have enough nurses here?

The Department of Health (DoH) said the number of graduating nurses has been “disproportionately high but why can’t the government provide domestic job opportunities for nurses to reach or at least narrow the gap in the ideal nurse-patient ratio?” he said.

Martinez noted that the ideal nurse to patient ratio is 1:4, while the ratio in government hospitals has increased from 1:50 to 1:100 in 2005.

“Unfortunately, Filipino nurses, caregivers and health practitioners are not regarded by the Philippine government as nation-builders and partners in addressing the crisis of the country’s health care system.

The Philippine government is optimistic that Filipino doctors will also be able to practice their profession as such and receive remuneration corresponding to their professional and educational qualifications.
