A lawmaker is pushing for a special local jobs plan for the growing number of unemployed Filipino nurses, estimated by the Department of Health at more than 200,000.

In House Bill 4582, LPG Marketers Association Rep. Arnel Ty proposed the creation of a jobs plan would be expanded version of the Nurses Assigned in Rural Service (NARS).

Ty noted that only about 3,000 Filipino nurses sought employment in the United States in the first semester of 2011, down by nearly half of the number recorded in the same period in 2010.

In the first semester of 2010, a total of 5,553 Filipino nurses attempted to enter into the nursing labor market in the US, Ty added.

“We can no longer count on the US labor market for jobs," he said, noting that on the supply side, America has been internally generating a large number of nurses.

“When the war is over, the work of Catholics will remain one of the most heroic pages of the Church in Libya,” said Mgr Martinelli. Despite the war, more than 2,000 Filipino nurses and doctors have remained in the country to serve the population.

Tripoli (AsiaNews) – “When the war is over, the work of Catholics will remain one of the most heroic pages of the Church in Libya,” said Mgr Giovanni Innocenzo Martinelli, apostolic vicar of Tripoli. Speaking to AsiaNews, he praised the “precious work” of more than 2,000 Filipino Catholics employed in local hospitals who have remained in the country to help the population.

“After NATO bombing started, most migrants lost their job and fled,” the prelate said. “Those who stayed behind have had to face enormous difficulties.”

Fuel is regularly in shortage supply in the main cities of eastern Libya (Tripolitania), Mgr Martinelli said. People have to join long line-ups to get bread and basic necessities.

Filipino nurse Jonelyn Gallego Tanalgo (picture), 27, has been working in the National University of Hospital (NUH) for the past three years. She had chanced upon a recruitment ad back home and decided to give it a shot.

The staff nurse said that based on her experience, patients here have higher expectations compared to those in the Philippines. She has even been scolded by some frustrated patients and family members but she has learned to take it in her stride.

She has also come to understand the different races and religious views of patients here and how to adapt to their varying needs.

OSLO, Norway - Around 100 Filipino nurses staged a protest rally in front of the venue of a forum where an Oslo politician is set to speak about his book on corruption that accuses Pinoy-owned recruitment agency, Active Service, Omsorg og Rekruttering (ASOR), of corrupt practices.

Chanting “We support ASOR” and “Enough is enough” in Norwegian and some wearing T-shirts with ASOR logos, the nurses caught the attention of the locals as they gathered in front of the Litteraturhuset awaiting the arrival of incumbent Oslo city council member Erling Folkvord who wrote the controversial book, “Our Corrupt Capital.”

They also held up placards with slogans “We support ASOR”, “Filipino nurses are competent”, “ASOR cares for nurses,” “Enough is enough”, “ASOR is innocent”, “Stop false accusations against ASOR and Filipina nurses”, and “thank you for the help Rizalina.”

Folkvord’s book details corrupt practices in the Oslo county and accused ASOR of sending invoices for free labor, not giving minimum wages, and employing unqualified personnel.

ASOR is one of the biggest agencies providing nursing aid services to elderly clients in Oslo. It counts the city government of Oslo as one of its biggest clients. From 2002 until the end of August 2010, city records show that the agency earned 67 million kroners (around P536 million at present exchange rates) from its city contracts.

It was founded in 2000 and lists as it owners Filipina Rizalina Galiza Jenssen and her Norwegian husband, Hallvard Jenssen

By MALOU M. MOZO

CEBU CITY, Philippines — Filipino nurses eyeing job opportunities in Australia will have to wait for at least two years as the Australian government announced it will hold off applications for foreign nurses beginning this year until 2013.

Austrialian Ambassador to the Philippines Rod Smith explained that this was due to a consolidation movement of Australia’s public healthcare sector.

“From now until 2013 there will be no significant demand for nurses outside of Australia,” he made this announcement during his recent visit to Cebu.

At present, Smith estimated some 250,000 Filipinos working and residing in Australia, majority of them working as nurses or other medical professions.

He failed to clarify, though, whether the employment status of Filipino nurses in Australia will be affected by the ongoing consolidation in their public health sector.

However, Smith said that employment demand for accountants, engineers, IT (Information Technology) experts in Australia will continue to grow over the next few years.

Earlier, Leah Samaco-Paquiz, Philippine Nursing Association president noted a plateau in the demand for Filipino nurses abroad including the United States (US) and Australia citing weakening demand from US employers and the issue on visa retrogression
