Glut of Filipino nurses because Government & Universities don't have 1-3 working experience slots in country hospitals Manila Times 3/7/09

There is now a glut of unemployed nurses because they cannot find work abroad despite the big demand for them in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia for lacking the required training and experience. Many have expressed willingness to pay for “internship” in the country’s top hospitals but there is simply no room for them.

The government’s current program of employing nurses in clinics and hospitals in the rural areas cannot provide them with the training in critical skills required by foreign hospitals. It becomes the duty of the Department of Health to arrange with some modern hospitals for the special training of these nurses, especially in highly technical work in operating rooms and intensive care units.
