The Licensure Exam for Nurses in the Philippines is slated to occur on July 3 and July 4 of this year, and just like any other scheduled examination, the upcoming NLE is bound to be packed with countless hopefuls. In fact, numbers show that almost 100,000 individuals will be taking the NLE.

The NLE is known to be a tough nut to crack, with many examinees needing to re-take the test. It is crucial, though, as passing the NLE is the first step for Filipino nurses to practice their profession legally.

However, the NLE is just that – a stepping stone – for many Filipino nurses. There is a proliferation of nursing jobs in our country, but the supply of nurses is higher than the demand; hence the desire for many Filipino nurses to broaden their horizons by looking for jobs overseas.

In order to be able to work in a foreign country, the United States, for example, a licensed Filipino nurse must pass the NCLEX first. There are many review centers offering NCLEX programs, and among the best is ALLGEN: The Intelligent Review. With our distinctive approach to learning, we’ve proven ourselves to provide our students with personalized instruction. Indeed, we can proudly say that we offer the best NCLEX review in town.

To give you a taste of what we have to share, we are offering a one-day pass to this batch of NLE examinees! This one-day pass allows you to sit-in on a day’s worth of NCLEX review classes in our Ermita Office. Any NLE examinee is more than welcome to join us, and if you like what you see, you can enroll in any of our upcoming NCLEX review programs.

On another note, we are also happy to announce that our Cebu branch is extending its services. More than NCLEX review programs, NLE review programs are going to be held at ALLGEN Cebu by August of this year. For more information on the Cebu branch, please visit our ALLGEN Cebu blog.

Demand For US Nurses To Go Up

Posted in Allgen Review Center, Barack Obama, NCLEX Workshops and Seminars, News, Nursing Immigration with tags , , , , on June 19, 2010 by allgen2008

The American Dream.  That’s what numerous Filipinos hold on to.  Even nursing students – perhaps especially nursing students – cling on to the hope that they can, one day, go to the United States to practice their profession and build a better lives for themselves.  Time does change things, however, and today, it seems that Filipino nurses are looking to greener pastures than those that can be found in America.

The Philippine Star published an article last week about this change.  According to the author, more Filipino nurses are now choosing the United Kingdom over the United States:

More and more Filipino nurses are now opting to work in the United Kingdom than in the United States, according to local recruiters.

Citing data from the UK Borders and Immigration Agency, recruitment leaders yesterday said that the number of Filipino nurses deployed to UK in the past three years has already surpassed those deployed to the US in the same period.

Data from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), on the other hand, showed that less than 300 registered Filipino nurses went to the US to work during the three-year period.

While this is the current situation, things can quickly change in the near future.  Experts in the field of nursing are quick to point out the Health Care Reform Bill, which the Obama Administration is pushing.  With this bill in place, the United States is sure to need more nurses in a short span of time.

In the next few years, the demand for nurses in the United States will open up far more possibilities for Filipino nurses, who are already known for their quality work.  As such, there is no better time than now to prepare for this surge in demand!

If nurses take the NCLEX now and get practical experience while waiting out the temporary slack, their chances of getting a job in the United States will increase exponentially.

We at ALLGEN realize our role in helping you prepare for this.  With our tried and tested NCLEX review program, we are confident that we can equip you with the best tools that can get you your dream nursing job in the US.  ALLGEN’s NCLEX review program has received several awards – testimonies to its effectiveness.

Why not make the best of this waiting period?  Find out more about what we have to offer, and get the benefits of the best NCLEX review program you can participate in.
