I'm a registered nurse in the Philippines and I feel I can't be successful here. It's hard to get a job even on the job trainings/volunteers. I'm still waiting to be called by any hospital to be a volunteer nurse and I'm being hopeless now for my career :(

Don't feel hopeless vycess. All of us will find success in time. I have waited about a year before I finally got a job.That's long, isn't it. haha. Now, I really have to work hard and even harder due to the competition.

Well we have so many nurses here in our country and every year more and more are added up. It is sad to note that the opportunities for work as so little and if ever there are, the compensation is so low. That is why, I do not blame them if they work outside the Philippines to look for a greener pasture. I wish the government cad do something about this problem. It has been there long ago and nothing is done to resolve it.

For me being a nurse here in the Philippines is becoming useless. Just this week new batch of NLE passers sprouted and that adding up to the unemployed nurses population here in the Philippines. Just a waste of money. Hoping to get a job but all you get is a paid training and it's not being recognized as experience. What's the use of a profession that you can't practice. I should have been a computer programmer then... I love nursing though but I am beginning to think it's not for me and I'm beginning to hate it. Such a waste of time.
