The Philippines is experiencing a brain drain of professionals, nurses more specifically. How would you contribute to this issue? if you are to pose solutions to this dilemma, what would these be?

I believe that one weird solution to that problem is for the congress/senate to pass a bill which will force the nurse graduates to stay and work here for years equal to the amount of years they finished their bachelor of nursing degree...for example if they finished their nursing degree for 6 years then they should also work here in the Philippines for six years before they will be allowed to go abroad. Another solution to that is for our government to increase the wage of everybody.

Overall, I hope that going abroad should not be the solution for everybody. We also need to bring out our nationalism because this country needs someone who will be molded and trained to become a great leader someday. And of course, everyone of us has an equal chance to be that person.

@lan:

he!!! lol!





@ mahal tongue :

waheee. naks. inspiring ka talaga!



A person I met pointed out...

Parang there's a behind-the-scene drama of the government. By sending its people to work outside the country, the Philippines is earning more in terms of dollars and foreign currency.

There's this program daw of GMA where OFW applicants have to do return demos of housechores like paglalaba and pamamalantsa. This is to ensure we send quality OFWs to countries like HK and China. Starting last year din ata, Japan has opened its door (for the first time) to Filipino nurses after government talks with the RP. Moreover, despite ultimatums and dangers in the Middle East countries, negotiations for job openings are being continued by Philippine Ambassadors.


In conclusion, parang GMA supports sending Filipino workers overseas for economic reasons. However, the country is left to suffer naman the consequences, which are not balanced by practical bills --like the ones you have enumerated.

Although of course, malay natin baka nga naman yung reason is to expand job opportunities for Filipino workers... which is okay. Pero sana within the country din di ba..

The trend of globalization and its implications on the Philippines' brain drain:


A nurse in the Philippines would earn a starting salary of less than $2,000 a year and at least $36,000 in the United States, said Dr. Jaime Galvez Tan, a medical professor at the University of the Philippines who led the country's National Institutes of Health.

He said the flight of nurses had a corrosive effect on health care. Most Filipinos died without medical attention in 2003, just as they had three decades earlier. And the percentage of women who gave birth with a doctor, nurse or midwife attending has declined in recent years.

Celia W. Dugger. International Herald Tribune. 2007


-------------------------------------------------------



POEA statistics indicate that over the past eight years, the number of Filipino workers who have left the country in pursuit of more gainful employment abroad has averaged 880,000 a year, with destinations spanning the globe from the Americas to the Middle East, Europe and other Asian countries. There are now more than 8 million overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) worldwide, representing 10% of the total Philippine population or nearly 23% of the country's labor force, according to the POEA.


the Philippines is currently the world's leading exporter of nurses. About 164,000 nurses, or 85% of the country's trained total, are working outside the Philippines. Out of this number, about 100,000 have left the Philippines in the past 10 years.

Most have been lured by the higher pay. Nurses in both private and publicly owned Philippine hospitals are paid between P3,000 and P6,000 ($58-$115) per month, said Leonor Rosero, chairperson of the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC). In such countries as Japan, the United States and the United Kingdom, they could earn as much as $5,000 a month, Galvaz-Tan estimates. Rising global demand has subsequently raised enrollment in most national nursing schools.




"Globalization has opened a lot of opportunities for Filipino professionals," said Lalaine Benitez-Chua, a Filipino expatriate based in Dubai who runs her own publishing firm. "I would think that the diaspora of Filipino professionals is mainly related to the performance of the Philippine economy - as well as the general feeling of hopelessness the country is plagued with."

Globalization has definitely had its upside in the Philippines. Historically the Filipino diaspora has sent home huge economic benefits to the Philippine economy through hefty foreign-currency remittances. OFW dollar remittances have recently averaged about US$7 billion per year, and peaked at more than $10.7 billion in 2005. Foreign remittances currently account for about 13% of the Philippines' total gross domestic product (GDP).

This March, the monthly remittance figure was more than $1 billion, a 19% jump from the previous month's figure. The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), the Philippine central bank, attributed the jump in remittances to the growing deployment of better-paid skilled workers, specifically engineers, nurses, and medical workers.

PostSubject: Bay Area Nursing College   Nurses, Philippines, and Brain Drain Icon_minitimeMon Sep 13, 2010 9:28 am

Wearing the uniform of a nurse was a dream I cherished since childhood. Little did I realize that my dream would come true after completion of studies from American College of Nursing. Not only does the San Francisco Bay area Nursing college provides the best of education, but also helps makes
learning a fun.http://www.americancollegeofnursing.com Laughing
