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.

Are you a “YES” Nurse?

Posted in Allgen Review Center, NCLEX Workshops and Seminars, Nursing Career, Nursing Immigration with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2009 by allgen2008

As I watched the movie “Yes Man” with Jim Carrey as the lead actor, I couldn’t help but look around me and see the silhouettes of the viewers’ faces. I was looking for the not-so bright twinkle in their eyes. That same not-so-bright twinkle that I have. An affirmation of guilt that in each and everyone of us Filipinos, is a dominant “NO” person. The movie inspired me to ask this question to all of you nurses and nursing graduates . Are you a “Yes” nurse candidate?

  1. When you live in Pasay City and there’s an upcoming expo at the Gateway Mall for nursing careers, you:
    (a) call to inquire;
    (b) let it pass and tell yourself there’s more expos to come nearby;
    (c)  Wait for your friends to decide whether or not they will come with you.
  2. When  you’re invited to a recruitment agency’s open house, you:
    (a) Call for reservations right away. Who knows the US employer might be present;
    (b) Say no, they might be illegal recruiters and only want your money;
    (c)  Ask for your mother’s opinion since she’s the one who wanted you to become a nurse in the first place.
  3. When you’ve just  passed your local board exam, your next step would be to:
    (a) Look for an NCLEX Reviewer right away. Time is gold;
    (b) Look for a job right away, what is the value of an  NCLEX score if there’s crisis in America;
    (c) Let your friend go ahead and take her review, see where it leads her, then you’ll decide.
  4. When you read an article in a newspaper and you see a company involved in a Medical Mission, your first reaction would be:
    (a) That’s great! I’m really very interested.Maybe I can join their next mission;
    (b) Publicity,publicity,publicity. These companies are so full of $%%$#;
    (c) I don’t read newspapers. Therefore, I don’t know.
  5. In a one-on-one interview with a representative of a US employer you froze and had a mental block and lost your chance of getting hired. Your immediate reaction would be to:
    (a) Walk up to the representative, explain to her you had a mental block and ask for a second interview;
    (b) Go to the receptionist and tell her you didn’t make it while your cold hands are clasping each other. I’m sure there’s more interviews to come;
    (c) What? Interview? What time is it? Oh my G%$#! I’m late for my interview!

If you answered “A” to 3 or more of the 5 question then you’re a “YES” nurse candidate. You are not afraid to ask questions. Neither are you afraid to take chances. By asking questions, you learn about the the validity of certain information. You are not afraid to ask for a second chance because nobody will ask for it in your behalf. You will end up in your dream job faster than the “NO” candidate.

If you answered “B” to 3 or more of the 5 questions, then you are a “NO” candidate. Being a “NO”  doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a negative person. It only mean you’re suspicious of a lot of things and most of it are related to our culture and history. You are intimidated by people of authority, because that’s how our culture dictated us to be. Remember, you are aspiring to work in a country where “practicality” comes first.You’d rather play safe than take the chance. Remember, opportunity knocks only once. If  you don’t try and  find out, how will you know if an agency is credible or not? There are  so many people who wanted to take up nursing but do not have the means. I f you wait  for your chance, it will pass on you. So, try and keep a positive attitude and watch miracles happen in front of you.

If you answered “C” in 3 or more of the 5 questions, you are in the wrong path. There is still hope for you to change, but you need to weigh your options. Do you really want to be a nurse? If your answer is no, then you need to make changes as early as possible.

Please comment on this article and let me know if this has been a helpful activity to you. Good luck in all you job interviews!
