  • Demo001

    Congratulations to the new batch of unemployed nurses in the Philippines.
    Hope the government do something to regulate giving licenses/accreditation  to Colleges and Universities offering Nursing just to earn money.

  • execute

    Accenture and Teleperformance congratulates all the passers in the nursing board. You all are welcome to apply.

  • marienkind

    I honestly dont get why the number of graduates of nursing still isnt dropping. Assuming these students started 4-5 years ago, that was already at a time when we already knew for a fact that there are way too many nursing grads and getting a decent pay as a nurse is really hard. Is it really just wishful thinking that somehow these students would be one of those lucky ones who actually profit from their college degree?

       MAGANTAY KA 2 years from now… mangangahalati bilang nyan….. yung nag implement ng moratorium 2 years ago palang yun… ibig sabihin 2nd yr ngayon ay lumiit na ng todo population….

    ayos to ah! marami na namang sales lady sa sm at bagong call center agents

    This shows how ineffective our education system is. Most students are dying to get a degree, as if it was a status symbol, but then end up doing something else.
    I really think that a lot of our high school graduates are immature and lack proper orientation on which course to take on college. In the first place, I don’t think everyone should go to college.

    • rezli

      Technical course ang bilis maka pag abroad, lalo na yung mga nag-aral sa tesda.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KELBC2K3ZHQWVW7ZCFKZUDDSEU Marlon

    nagpakahirap pa kayong mag-nursing at board exam pero sa call center lang naman ang bagsak.

    wag magpaloko sa mga NURSING SCHOOL at mga NURSING REVIEW CENTER kasi pinagkakakitaan lang kayo ng mga yan.

    matagal nang sabi ng CHED na wag na mag-nursing pero ayan nagpaloko pa rin.

    WELCOME TO THE REAL WORLD OF UNDEMPLOYED NURSES!!!

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    PARTY PARTY TODAY!!! CRY CRY TOMORROW!!!

      And daming tambay na nurse, ayon ang iba sale lady nalang.

  • Hey_Dudes

    OMG.  Here’s an additional 27,000+ fresh degree holders out of work!  I bet the only entity salivating in this are the recruiters eying to fleece more money from these individuals who likely will end up overseas.

    • rezli

      Pag yan kinaray ng mga buwayang mga recruiters, ang mga bagong board passer na 27 thousand at hiningan ng placement fee na 20 thousand each, aba, na sa half billion din, kaya ngayon buhay na naman ang mga illegal recruiters.

    Ano ba naman ang Pilipinas? Mas production? papano na ito.. tama nga naman, kailangan ng PILIPINAS ang mga nurses, pero sila kailangan nila pera.. sahod..magandang kinabukasan. Aray ko papano na? Dagdag nalang sila sa mga walang bayad na nagtatrabaho sa mga hospital ng Pilipinas? tsk tsk tsk.. Gising mga kababayan, bayaran mo na nila ang mga serbisyo ng mga nag volunteeeeeeerrrr noong nakalipas ng panahon.. o kaya CALL CENTER na naman ang mapasukan ng mga ito? Aray!

    This is the reason why we need RH Bill the population growth like this doesn’t serve our advantage. What about if 90% of them pass the exam where you gonna put all of them even our economy is good we could not provide all of them a proper job.

    Next year another 60,000 examiners, Mga Kapwa Filipino Gumising na tayong lahat at magka-isa we need a peaceful revolution. Our legislators need to pass RH Bill now, Don’t support Catholic Church.

       TANG@ bupol…. alam mo ba ano mangyayari kung lumiit ipapanganak sa mga darating na panahon…. DADAMI ang MATATANDA kumpara sa mga BATA…. sino ang mag aalaga sa mga matatanda… sino ang magtratrabaho para tustusan ang pangangailangan ng tumatandang populasyon….. pag nangyari na pariho lang ang dami ng bata sa matatanda… MAS MALAKING PROBLEMA dadatngan natin…. mas malala kung mas madami yung matanda… sino mag a-alaga sa kanila…. MAGAGAYA TAYO SA MGA BANSANG US, CANADA, at iba pa na kailangan nila ng MIGRANTS para punan ang nawalang populasyon…. SO SAAN NA ANG POP CONTROL kung sa darating na panahon kukuha tayo ng MIGRANTS???? yan ay kung may pera ang pinoy para maghire ng migrants as CAREGIVER….

  • buddy binky

    Sa mga nasa abroad send your money wisely, send your money only if it will be used for investment (Sari Sari Store, family business, agriculture, fish farming anything that is useful) don’t send it for birthday party, or to buy material things like labelled shoes etc., help them to invest your money in a proper way so that this money would multiply & create jobs. We should put the OFW money useful like what the Koreans, Chinese, Japanese did to create capital.

  • regd

    So, ok, almost 28k  nurses passed. More exams still to come. Sorry sweetie, it’s just the beginning of a struggle to work, where else – overseas. You did not take the exam just to work here did ya?

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZHTJJKL4HIMRZQAXMW5TTTV7XU Anti

       OO karamihan naman sa kanila nag NURSE not because they love NURSING… but because THEY LOVE MONEY….. waaaaaaaa….. yung mga nasa abroad nga daw… PERA PERA LANG YAN…. kaso nga di gaano kagandahan economy ng buong mundo.. kaya ganun….

      hayaan mo, after 10-15 years… sisigla ulit buhay nurse….. dadami ulit pangangailangan ng nurse…

      at sa darating na 20 years… dahil maimplement na RH Bill… siguradong dadami mangangailangan ng NURSES para mag alaga ng maraming matatanda….. liliit kasi numero ng mga bata kumpara sa mga matatanda…… dahil pinatay natin sila bago pa man sila ipanganak….. CAREGIVER labas nyo nito…

     Wow, less than 50% passers? They should eliminate those nursing programs of school with low passers.

    • VidaGuerrero

       agree 100%

  • VidaGuerrero

    if the board of examiners / the inquirer can identify the top performing schools based on the results, i’m sure they can identify the worst performing schools as well. i think the parents should also know them para naman kung sakali, maiwasan ang mga diploma mills na ito na ang ginagawa lang ay kunin ang matrikula ng mga magulang pero kulang naman ang itinuturo sa mga estudyante.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZHTJJKL4HIMRZQAXMW5TTTV7XU Anti

      Sa best and worst school???… daming blogs na nag post nung school performance sa board…. dun mo makikilala anong school ang maganda pag aralan…  search mo lang kung ano na exam tapos school performance…. dun complete listahan…

  • Jawili1

    What happened to the talk about a moratorium from Dept. of Education regarding admissions to Nursing programs and limiting the number of Nursing Schools ? We now have added almost 28,000 brand new RN’s to our already bursting unemployed nurses!!! Another easy picking for hospitals for exploitation to get professional services in the form of “volunteers”.As for the new or not so new RN’s  if you’re thinking of taking the NCLEX , I’d give it a second thought. No or very few US health care facilities ,that I am aware of, are hiring/recruiting due to the US economy not doing so well. You’ll just end up wasting your parents’ or your own money on it. If I’m not mistaken,NCLEX does expire in 2 years if you do not get US employment. On the positive note, congratulations for passing the exams.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZHTJJKL4HIMRZQAXMW5TTTV7XU Anti

      i agree… wala na sa US at sa Europe… pag meron man.. mga work visa nalang available at saka madalang na daw…. my ate says so… she knows of a recruiter and there are a lot of nurses waiting to be hired… but there are no hiring sa mga hospitals na alam nya… yung moratorium naman… ang effect nyan after 4 years pa nung simulang ipatupad ang programa…. sa alam ko.. halos 60-75% decline ang nag e-enroll sa mga nursing schools this year…. sa isang university na alam ko… 50 nalang student nila sa first year mula sa 200… before daw super haba ng waitlist, super dami ng nag papa admission test… ngayon daw… kulang na daw nagpapa admission test…

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/ZHTJJKL4HIMRZQAXMW5TTTV7XU Anti

    DI NYO LANG ALAM na i hire sila ng GOBYERNO NI PANOT in the implementatio of RH Bill…. mga new nurses ang maglilibot sa buong pilipinas paano gamitin ang CONDOM.. mag dedemosntrate sila…. sila din ang magsasagaw ng mga contracepion activities like vasectomy, tubal ligation, IUD, etc… pag pumalya naman ang mga contraceptives… they can also be hired to do ABRTION acts…. at para sa extreme na condisyun.. sila din ang uutusan ni PINOT na mag execute ng mass mercy killing… sisimulan sa mga squaters area para mabawasan populasyon nila….. mga 20Milyon kasi target na mawala sa popolasyon… yung mga patutulugin ng mahimbing magpakaylanman ay yung mga nakatira sa squaters… KUNG TAGA SQUATERS KAYO… handa na kayo kasi kayo ang target….
