Are There Enough Nursing Jobs For New Filipino Nurses?

The Philippine Board Exam Result has just came out a day ago, and there are at least 39,455 new Filipino Registered Nurses here in the country, but the question is, are there Jobs available for Filipino Nurses?

Yeah we know that Nursing is not that affected by the world financial crisis, but the thing is there is an oversupply of Nurses here in Philippines, 39,455 new Nurses and a hundred thousand more beyond that who are either underemployed and worst unemployed.

The Philippine Government have had the NARS Program, but it is not enough to support the new Nurses here in our country. The NARS program is limited to only 10000 Nursing Jobs which is not merely enough to support the new nurses that had recently passed the Nursing Board Examination.
With the current situation of the whole world, even nurses who wanted to travel to other countries such as USA have been somehow limited since the guarantee for a stable job abroad has been diminished.

Travel Nursing Jobs had been in boom since around 3-4 years ago, but the Global Financial Crisis had affected every countries so much that the dream of a Nurse traveling abroad back around 3-4 years before was somehow a dream that was made to be shattered if not cracked.
Even if the number of Nurses looking for a Job continues to grow, there is no reason to give up. Nurses and Filipinos in particular needs to be flexible in these kinds of times.
