i'm from philippines , and here , , mostly , , college students are taking up bachelor of science in nursing , , including me , , for the same reasons (well, almost) we want to go out of this country , , perhaps work abroad , , such as UNITED STATES , Canada, London, Australia , , , many people choose their courses according to their salaries , , i mean is this right? , , aren't we supposed to choose our degree in college not because of the income but because we wanted to do it? , , a sad reality , , some don't even think if the course that they would be taking is their interest , , that would be so difficult for them , , imagine , , you will be working for the rest of your life , , in that field , , and yet , , you do not have any interest in that field , , you got my point ? , , aww,,, sad, but true , , some are doing it because of the money, , what about the things they love to do? , , the things they excel at? , , how are they supposed to show others that they are good at this and that if they are staying on the wrong place? , , , what are your thoughts about this? , , speak up , , (--,)

The reason is simple there re a number of sick patients to be taken care at times and that there re not enough nurses and doctors to help them, and as u see there are number of disasters which are in row like tsunami,landslides,earthquakes,which is not in the hands of a human and the victims are not getting enough support to take care of them. so nurse are in demand in all the countries.
