‘Many nurses, few jobs’ Cebu Daily News 04/16/2009

The skills of more than 1,000 nurses in Cebu are not being utilized because medical facilities locally or abroad cannot accommodate or afford them.

Dr. Ronald Fermo, regional governor of the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) – Cebu Chapter, said that due to the decline in the demand of nurses abroad and the inability of local hospitals to pay for nursing staff, nurses end up working as call center agents or become staff at hotels, shopping malls or offices.
