On Thursday, they and 14 Philippine nurses working at surgical wards of the Helsinki University Central Hospital (HUCH) will graduate as nurses from the Laurea University of Applied Sciences.

In fact, the nurses will be doubly qualified, for they all already have a nursing degree from their home country. Now they are also completing the Finnish university of applied sciences nursing degree programme.

“Normally this is a three-and-a-half-year degree, but we have completed it in a year, and also learned the language in the process”, Torres explains.

Combining work and studies has not exactly been easy, however. The students have had clinical onsite training four days a week. On Tuesdays and Saturdays they have been in school. In addition, they have had their fair share of homework. Sunday has been the only day off.

At times the students have been so tired in the morning that they have found it hard to get out of the bed. Fortunately the roommate has been there to provide support and motivation. In this respect the Finnish colleagues have also been of help.

Armando Tavera, Las Piñas City:

The report says it all. Local job opportunities for these nursing graduates are getting nil. Last option, pack your things and work abroad.

Ruel Bautista, Laguna: Sorry, but again, this is an oversight by a callous and misdirected government in sorting out its duties and obligations to the Filipino people.

Warn incoming students

Carmela Ramento, Cagayan de Oro City: Nursing schools in the country should warn incoming enrollees that there are dim or no prospects of getting a job after graduation.

Louella Brown, Baguio City: The report that some 287,000 Filipino nurses are unemployed or underemployed is a wake-up call for CHED to regulate nursing schools and for parents to encourage their children to pursue other courses.

MANILA, Philippines -- The third batch of Filipinos applying as nurses are scheduled to leave for Japan on Sunday for an additional six months of Japanese language training there starting on May 30, the Japanese embassy in Manila has reported.

According to the embassy, the preparatory Japanese language training is made possible through the combined efforts of the governments of Japan and the Philippines.

Japan provided the language instructors and the Philippines arranged for the training venues.

"This endeavor, which is the first of its kind, goes beyond their standing commitments in the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) and aims to further assist Filipino candidate nurses in passing the Japanese Nursing Licensure Examination after they enter and study in Japan," the embassy said in a statement.

The third batch, which is made up 71 candidate nurses, had already gone through preparatory training from March 28 to May 20 in the Philippines.

At a send-off ceremony at the TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) head office in Taguig City, the embassy’s Minister for Economic Affairs of the Akio Isomata stressed that “being fully equipped with the Japanese language is of paramount importance for successful implementation of the Movement of Natural Persons (MNP) scheme under JPEPA.”

"It is essential not only for pursuing a successful career as qualified nurses in Japan but also for leading a well-integrated life in the Japanese society,” Isomata said in his speech

MANILA, Philippines — Congress has urged Malacañ ang to make a comprehensive review of the Philippine-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement (PJEPA) and focus on investments and exports.


This was the consensus reached by members of the Committee of Economic Affairs of the House of Representatives after listening to executives of agencies monitoring implementation of the first and only bilateral economic treaty the Philippines.


The House committee on economic affairs chaired by Ramon Durano VI called a public hearing on House Resolution No. 828 urging President Aquino to call for a comprehensive review of the treaty in the light of reports that Japan has made Filipina nurses pass through the eye of the needle in getting permanent employment in that country.


Based on testimonies of officials of the Department of Health and the Department of Labor during the public hearing, the lawmakers were informed of the dismal performance of Filipina nurses deployed as health workers.


In three batches in the first three years that the treaty was in place, the Labor Department deployed over 500 licensed nurses that took six months of language training then hired as nursing assistants and then allowed to take the Japanese licensure examinations. In each of the first two batches of board examinees, only one Filipina nurse passed and qualified for permanent employment in Japan with pay scales equal to Japanese nurses

MANILA, Philippines: The House committee on Economic Affairs endorsed yesterday a resolution seeking the renegotiation of the Japan-Philippines Economic Partnership Agreement (JPEPA) to allow the entry of more Filipino nurses in Japan.

Eastern Samar Rep. Ben Evardone, who authored Resolution 828, said Japan had promised to recruit an initial 1,000 nurses when JPEPA was signed on September 9, 2006.

Five years after the promise was made, only two nurses have so far passed the nursing licensure examination in Japan, hurdled other requirements and have been recruited, he said.

He said 240 other nurses have been qualified only as “nursing trainees or nursing assistants,” while 229 more have been accepted as caregivers.

“The stringent requirements before Filipino health professionals can be accepted in Japan should be renegotiated to realize one of the main objectives of JPEPA, which is to liberalize the flow of goods and services between the two countries,” he stressed.

MANILA, Philippines — Six American firms with combined estimated investments of $100 million are outsourcing their non-voice services to the Philippines and are expected to create 10,000 jobs, Board of Investments managing head Cristino L. Panlilio said.


Panlilio, who has just arrived from an investment mission abroad, refused to identify these firms but said these are new players in the market.


Earlier, the BoI also reported that leading American insurance firm AETNA will tap Filipino nurses without jobs to provide clinical support for its insurance claims and to provide service to home care patients in the US .

Board of Investments executive director Fe Reyes-Agoncillo said there are two components for this niche project.


“There are 30,000 unemployed nurses in the country and some of them have the opportunity to provide clinical support to these American patients,” Agoncillo said.


AETNA has tapped EXL Service, a local firm that directly transacts business with AETNA .


For the first project component, Agoncillo said that 250 nurses are already working to provide assessment on medical claims by patients who are going to undertake treatment of their illnesses.


The potential is to hire a total of 500 Filipino nurses who would undertake the job.
