Nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations.

But what is happening to all the Filipino nurses nowadays? After graduated and took up the Nursing Board Exam, what should be the next step? And that is to find a job. According to the statistic, there are approximately 200,000 graduates of nurses every year in the Philippines but only 2,500 are getting the right job for it. Let us just do some percentage here; approximately there is only 1.25% from graduates who gets a job?

What will happen to those who remain jobless? Why does the government keeps on accepting enrollees to take up nursing courses from different universities if they know for a fact that Filipino nurses are overly populated. Are there any quotas for it? What are they aiming for? Maybe, to human export again these professionals to become a “bagong bayani” or OFW (Overseas Filipino Workers)?
