Totoo nga bang may oversupply ang mga nurses sa Pilipinas?

Oversupply of Filipino Nurses in the Philippines
Based on conducted surveys, there has been an oversupply of Filipino nurses here in the Philippines. The primary factor cited is having wide availability of nursing schools. Students are bombarded with successful nursing stories abroad that invite them to take up nursing courses in escape to poverty. Inspiring stories has been promoted by nursing school to attract many and many more students to increase their profit. Also, someone of the family members had direct contact or relation who is earning dollars abroad, thus solidify the intent to take nursing profession.
To this connection, most high school graduates are enrolling to these nursing schools as their chosen college course. As a result, every year produces more and more nursing graduates.
Another caused would be the practical nursing program, which is a vocational course. Many people believe that practical nursing program is the shortcut to the four year degree course. The increasing practical nursing program from different nursing schools has encouraged more students to jump into the nursing roar.
Through this false advertising student are led to believe that practical nursing course is a shortcut on going to abroad that taking the degree course. However reports showed practical nursing graduates are having difficult time on finding jobs abroad contrary to what was advertised.
Considering the number of unemployed nurses, how will the government respond to this situation? For sure, this will add the unemployment rate of the Philippines and if the government will not take necessary actions to stop this condition, this might be the caused of deteriorating demand in the nursing profession.

Well if you would ask me personally i think too many nurses are graduating in the Philippines. Kaya lang po the problem lies to the quality of education that these nurses get because the passing rate of Philippine Nurse licensure examinations falls below 50% passing rate compared to the year 1990's and back. Quality of nursing education declined because of some reasons like lack of quality educators(mostly went abroad for job),more students-educators ratio,and nursing students were not driven of nursing profession because of they really wanted to become a nurse to care for a sick,simply,the wanted to become a nurse to land a job.

A story had been circulating through the internet about this nurse symposium which happened sometime ago where in a nurse who had just been asked, "why you took up nursing degree?" And then an old lady stood up and said ,"I wanted to serve humanity!" Then another younger one replied: I wanted to earn dollars! (laughing).

Now, in restrospect, its sounds like a joke but there's a reality in it. The philippine school of nursing changed its perspective now a days except for some who retains their mission and vision.

What do you think about this problem? Isnt it getting serious over time?

I can say that there could be a surplus of nurses in the Philippines.I know some friends who are nurses and still unemployed. Some are depressed and in regret why they took up nursing. If i remember it right, many years ago this  same scenario happened. Nurses were forced to take up other jobs such as Medical Representatives or be in call center representatives. This is a cycle that repeats itself in a decade or so. Teaching hospitals are currently having training programs for nurses. That is one option that new nurses could take.

Also for those unemployed, why not undergo a training for skills development while waiting for employment. I know there's this exchange program for nurses between the Philippines and the United States thru Global Scholarship alliance (check out You will be sent to the United States at no cost and earn a Master of Science in Nursing in one of their universities and work at the same time. Study and work then after completing your degree and now possessing the knowledge and skills gained in the US healthcare system, you will then share it to your country by serving in a hospital or in the academe. Kya lng i think in order for you to pass kelangan maganda ang grades mo at competitive ka academically.
