Demand For US Nurses To Go Up

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.
