Best Nursing School in the Philippinesposted by: Gretchen
Nursing has become a very in demand profession abroad among Filipinos. Many students aspire to be a professional nurse and dream of working abroad. This has become the trend because of the need of countries like Canada, US, Norway, and other rich countries of health workers and caregivers. These countries have to hire foreign workers due to the growing need for health care services, an aging workforce, and the lack of interest among youth to take up nursing because of the difficult working conditions. These are some reasons why Filipino nurses are in demand abroad. It isn’t easy to become a nurse and get hired abroad, especially now that there are too many registered nurses in the country. Many nurses are not lucky enough to get hired abroad.
Due to the increasing number of students who want to earn a nursing degree, a lot of schools in the Philippines have included BS in Nursing in their academic programs. People in the business community have established nursing schools without a guarantee of good quality education in the field. There are too many nursing graduates but only a few can successfully pass the board exam.
