    I am extremely lost right now. alam ko maraming tulad ko na nawawala... nawawalan na ng loob sa paghihintay.

    here's my story. I'm sorry for ranting, pero pagnakakakita ako ng nakaputi, mga estudyanteng nagduduty sa ospital gusto ko na sila alugin at sabihing magshift ka nalang dude.

    2007 grad ako, passed the exam june 07.

    2008 nakapagtraining ako sa university hospital namin for 2 months medical surgical ward and operating room.

    march-august 09 I was hired as an operating room staff nurse sa univeristy hospital namin on a contractual basis. ayun masaya siya na nakakapagod but I was happy there. kahit walang benefits at 476 pesos a day I figured mas okay na ito kaysa wala. marami din akong natutunan, from scrub to circulating to HNOD duties. maraming services din ang nakabisa ko from neuro, uro, ob gyne, plastics, ortho, ent at general surgery. almusal ko ang emergency exlap ng mga nasasaksak. midnight snack naman ang direct craniotomies.

    5 months ding ganun until my contract ended. towards the end of my contract my father had cva. malaking tulong din na nakapagwork ako sa hospital na iyon because they helped me, my co staff, the doctors i've worked with. after that everything was blurred out, lumipas ang panahon ng di ko namamalayan dahil marami akong inayos sa mga naiwan ni daddy because it was so sudden.

    come april 2010, may nag tip na hiring daw ang isang ospital sa maynila, so i tried and got called in for training. from april-may 2010 nagduty ako doon sa med surg area at er. after that wala din. apparently even if you did really well it all boils down to whether may backer ka o wala. and apprently ako ay wala.

    after that, I've been waiting eversince. nagtry nadin ako ng online work pero I can't see myself doing it for full time.

    masaya akong maging nurse and I love to work. But I realized it just isnt working anymore. Im sure lahat ng nurse naiintindihan to. naeexploit yung profssion, volunteer ka walang bayad minsan ikaw pa nagbabayad pero at risk ang lisensya mo.

    I have pending applications, sa dati kong work na nagrerehire, nkti, and the government of manila. kaso madalas tinatanong ko sarili ko if I should leave nursing na.

    kayo ba? umaasa pa ba kayo? kasi im really considering studying again. I just dont know what course. I as even thinking I'd go for the weird courses like molecular biology, meteorology, geology yung mga onti lang ang nagtatake.

    anong plano niyo? :depressed:

    i understand you very much. i am still a student first year ako nun pumutok ang balita na over supply na ang nga RNs dito sa pinas at di naman makapag abroad dahil freezed hiring sa ibang bansa. every sem iniisip ko lagi na mag shift although payag yung parents ko dahil alam na rin nila kakahinatnan ko if i finished BSN and became a full pledge RN. iniisip ko lang 3rd yr na ako, isang taon na lang at matatapos na kaya iniisip ko nalang na mag second course ako right after graduation kahit hindi muna ako makapag board exam basta makapg enroll uli after finishing BSN.

    with regards to your concern, i highly agree and i HIGHLY RECOMMEND to take another course that you will also enjoy dahil sa totoo lang dude, kung RN ka sa panahon ngayon, walang kang aasahan,walang mangyayari sa buhay mo, yan ang totoo kaya daming RNs sa call center yan ang dahilan. at isa pang rason dude - tama ka para makapasok ngayon as a staff nurse dapat may backer ka kahit pa marami kang cerificates kung di ka naman malakas sa company wala rin.
    the best remedy, go back to school, enroll for an MBA and apply to companies OR take another course.

    good luck dude.

    Nurses

    The number of registered nurses is expected to swell to 3.2 million by 2018, accounting for approximately 581,500 new jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That's up from 2.6 million today, and it represents the largest overall growth projection out of all occupations in the U.S. economy, for good reason.

    Americans aged 65 and older will make up 19% of the population in 2030, up from 12.4% in 2000. As the population ages and the growth of the working-age population slows down, there will be an increased demand for health care services in general, and home health care services in particular. In the past year, the home health care services industry has experienced sales growth of 11.2%, making it the fastest growing industry in the U.S., according to Sageworks, a financial analysis company.

    Along with registered nurses, Sageworks projects that home care aids, physician assistants, pharmacists, and other medical professions will be in high demand for the foreseeable future.



    Hello TS, nabasa mo ba? We will be in demand in the future haha :D Seriously, may cycle naman talaga ang nursing profession, sa ngayon, ganyan, mahirap kumuha ng trabaho, may retrogression sa US..

    Good news is, that is just temporary. :)

    So, anong plano ko? Plano ko talaga, mag based sa US, since andun ang family ko. So plano ko lang, mag take muna ng Nclex, to pass it, sana one take lang haha, and mag gain ng experince dito sa Pilipinas for about a year.


    So anong plano ng mga kaibigan ko? Plano nila, mag take ng Nclex din, by next year, to pass it din siyempre haha, and ngayon, mag aapply sila sa mga US based agencies.

    Yeah i know, may retrogression, pero ang point dun, nakapila na yung papel nila, while habang nag aantay mabigyan ng US visa, eh nag wowork sila dito sa Pilipinas, gaining experience.

    Kung magbukas man agad ang US, nakapila na papel nila. Like what I told you, this is just temporary.

    And, oo hindi madali, bakit, sino ba nagsabi na magiging madali diba? Wala namang madaling way towards success unless magiging politician ka LOL.

    So, this should be you, tanungin mo ang sarili mo, gusto mo bang mag abroad? Or dito sa Pilipinas mag work, or mag clinical instructor sa universities.

    Dapat ngayon pa lang, pinaghahandaan mo na kung ano ang gusto mo. Tiyaga lang TS. Goodluck sa ating lahat :)

    believe me yung mga pinaghahandaan niyo nagawa ko nadin...

    nakapagnclex narin ako nitong june lang, pero kahit makapasa ka magaantay ka lang din na magexpire yung license mo... hindi sa napakapessimistic ko, pero most of my friends who took it immediately after the boards nun 2007 ganun narin ang nangyare.

    good plan un sinabi mo... yan din plano ko noon... take nclex, ielts, find work ang gain exp.

    most agencies demand 1 year paid working exp. volunteer work hindi nacrecredit. nakapagwork na ako ng 5 months kung tutuusin konti nalang pero inikot ko na ata lahat ng ospital sa manila and northern luzon para lang makakuha ng "paid work".

    pero inspiring na there are still people like you na hopeful. sana mahawaan ako.

    I'm really thinking of taking another course. pag nagopen *** nursing sa ibang bansa at nabawasbawasan na ang mga nurse dito maybe i'll go back. in the mean time ***** kailangan ko muna dumiskarte. we're not getting any younger.

    as for medicine. pangarap ko yan. pero gusto kong ako na lang gagastos sa studies ko someday.

    thanks guys. di naman ako negative ******, im coming from experiences that really pull u down lang. naexhaust ko na kasi lahat eh. nagawa ko na yung nclex ielts, contractual work, to volunteer work, to umasa sa systema ng gobyerno.

    makikisawsaw lang. i am also considering med school after graduation kaya nga lang ang mahal so kung di ako matuloy i will take up pharmacy or molecular biology.
  • friedfingersfriedfingers cheeselover PExer
    iniisip ko din yang molecular biology... :D nagaaccept ba ng second coursers ang UP diliman?
  • tesitiamtesitiam Member PExer
    I have a friend na RN and magshishift na siya ng path. As for me, I'm currently working as a volunteer staff nurse sa isang district hospital up north and hopefully everything goes according to plan. Totoo yung backer ish na yan. Kahit dedicated ka at highly skilled pa, kung walang kapit wala din trabaho. Pero siyempre, gaya nga ng sinabi mo, kailangan dumiskarte. I hope maliwanagan ka sa gusto mong gawin in the near future. :)
  • RevelationsRevelations Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    take up a totally different course other than nursing; in fact, take up a course AWAY FROM ANY RELATED SUBJECTS FROM MEDICINE.

    why? mababato ka kung same old subjects like anatomy, physiology, etc. try to find out what is your second skill. right now napagsawaan mo na ang nursing so it's time to develop another skill set.

    try HRM or computer sciences, IT, electronic engineering, even architecture. at least credited ang mga minor subjects. as long as you have the funds [patience and motivation] then go for it.

    kahit nga VOCATIONAL course eh. take up welding or bakery/bread making -- I hear cake-making is becoming a boom once again.
  • RevelationsRevelations Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    oh, dagdag on the vocational training. take up HEALTH AND BEAUTY courses as this is very much in demand.

    mga beauticians. matuto ka magrebond, hot oil, hair cutting, manicure/pedicure, nail care, etc.

    no joke.
  • AshtonangeloAshtonangelo happy-go-lucky PExer
    Ako nga hindi pa nagttrabaho as a nurse ayoko na ata eh. Gusto ko maging pilot, chef or kung anu man haha.
  • RevelationsRevelations Member PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    how about this.. take up DENTISTRY. kakaunti ang dentists.

    i'm sorry if i may sound pessimistic here, pero napansin ko most of the younger generation Americans realize that healthcare is the career of the future, kaya sobrang daming mga batang kano, at maski mga older generation na rin ang nag-tetake ng LPN and BSN ngayon..sa hospital lang namin, punung puno lagi ng nursing students... and pag mag-interview ka ng mga karaniwang pasyente, sabihin sayo mga apo nila, pinakukuha nila ng nursing kasi yun nga daw isa sa pinaka-stable no job..by the time na dumating yung future na sinasabi mo, ma-fifill-up na nila ang gap sa demands for nurses...

    I'm no nurse (obviously) but based on what I've read and what my relatives abroad say, the trend is to give priority to nurses who are already there in the US.

    last priority ang mga nasa applicants na dumadaan sa agencies or those who would come from abroad. this is part of the job stimulus that Obama wants to encourage-- citizens get first crack at jobs.

    i relate with you TS. ako din nahihirapan na.:(:(:( i passed the exam on nov 2008 with good ratings, nakapag BLS and IVT na din ako and i am now considering training to become a CRN. also, i consider my TOR and RLE as above average pero palakasan yata talaga sistema dito. kahit university hospital namin pinrefer pang unahin yung batch 2009 than i who's batch 2008.

    share ko lang din personal experience ko. i applied for one of the leading private hospitals in the metro on nov 2009. the HR committed an error (deliberately?) so my name was not listed among those seeking a position. so i returned to the hospital last march to renew my application. six months have passed now and i still haven't got a call. i keep checking every month if i missed out on any screening exam or interview. i admit that i don't have much experience since after graduation i began working as an academic writer to make meets end. but i was optimistic since my cousin was immediately hired as a staff nurse even without any experience or basic training such as IVT. i told myself that if she was accepted (along with others who also did not have any previous experience), i too will be considered for the job. after all may training silang provided sa applicants and probation before maging full-time staff. kaya lang kakasawa na maghintay. nagaalala na ako sa future ko.

    another thing, i have a friend who was able to enter another prestigious private hospital by having a backer. imagine, mahirap daw pumasok dun pero she got in simply because she has a relative. i know it is practical to grab on an opportunity if one has a backer but sadly, it leaves out those who are capable and competent. sayang naman, sana equal ang treatment sa lahat ng applicants. what i cannot accept is that others are preferred due to their connections. nakakayamot talaga minsan.

    most hospitals want those who have previous experience. but what the heck, how can i gather experience if everyone else is not willing to be the first to provide it?

    Learn why the right college degree can help lead to the right job.

    By Chris Kyle

    Wondering which degrees can get you hired? Why not ask the people who do the hiring?

    We polled a half-dozen HR managers and experts throughout the country to see what college degrees they want to see on the resumes hitting their desks.

    The HR professionals work with employees in all industries, from private-sector firms and public agencies to non-profits, and the consensus was simple: now more than ever, your degree does matter.

    [Click here to find a degree program]

    "Get this message out to the guidance counselors of America," said Coy Renick, a Virginia-based HR professional. "It's not about getting a degree. It's about getting the right degree."

    For info on what degrees are hottest - and why - keep reading. Our HR experts have answers.
    #1 Degree - Health Care & Nursing

    In a 2010 poll by the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), 84 percent of HR specialists in the health care industry said they were currently hiring, leading all other sectors of the economy. Echoing that optimism, the U.S. Department of Labor says that 10 of the 20 fastest growing occupations through 2018 are health-related.

    Tip #1: "Anything related to the aging population is hot," said Roberta Matuson of Massachusetts-based Human Resource Solutions. "Whether it's a nutritionist, nurse, or nursing assistant, many hospitals can't afford to staff as many doctors, so they are bringing in people who can do a lot of the same things but at a lower cost."

    Tip #2:"Like it or not, outsourcing is a long-term trend so you have to ask yourself: What jobs can be outsourced and what cannot? Many medical jobs cannot," said Steve Kane, an HR expert and former VP at a Fortune 50 global medical services company.

    Degrees in Demand:
    Medical Assistant
    Nursing Assistant
    Registered Nurse
    Health Care Administration

    Careers & Salaries:
    Home Health Aides: $21,440

  • nash_bedistanash_bedista Member PEx Guru ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
    i'll just share my story din..

    My Mom passed 07 Board Exams, she take nursing as her 2nd course, yung 1st course is Accountancy during 1980's pa.. during that time, in-demand ang Business Courses like that, yung nursing hindi pinapansin. By the time of early 2000's, in-demand na ang Nursing .. and that time mahina na yung "BUNKER FUEL OIL SALES" sa market, yun ata yung pag taas ng "DIESEL, KEROSENE etc" ... so my mom tried nursing, nakuha lang nya 3 yrs and half because of her dating subject na credit sa school. Enjoy naman siya and graduated honors ..

    Still my mom work parin sa sales,(working student kung baga) and during that time nagiging stable na ang presyo ng Langis sa International Market ... until such time na parang hindi na siya ganun ka-interesado sa practice ng Nursing .. sabi nya na "nag try lang ako mag nursing to explore other things not just on SALES, sometimes you win and sometimes you lose sa SALES" .. at yung pag pasok ng mom ko sa nursing is just the "DARK AGES" namin sa family.. medyo mahina yung income but still nakapagtapos parin kami ng parents ko.

    Nagtake nalang siya ng Masteral sa Nursing parin, and she finished it with honors despite na nagwwork siya parin sa SALES, and mom told us and encourage na " Ang Pera ay nasa Sales, oversupply na ang nurses here in the Philippines .."

    Same sentiments here na pag wala kang backer sa isang hospital, kahit marami at sandamakmak ang training, awards etc.. wala ka nag mararating ... why do you need to prolonged your agony by waiting ??

    So tama yung sinabi ni Friedfingers and silvergold, kahit graduate or RN kana at sa tingin mo eh malabo ka pang makapasok at ma practice yung 4 years labor sa nursing, try other field na gusto mo talaga .. take vocational courses or 2nd courses na magiging benefited sayo in the future .

    :)

    Share ko lang din story ko:

    I passed the Board Exam on June 08. Syempre pg bgong RN ka pa lang you feel na nas Cloud 9 ka.Saka mo na *** mafefeel yung depression once you realize that the hospitals kung san ka nagpasa ng resume mo,eh d ka tatawagan FOREVER. Pero xempre dahil optimistic ako, what I did was I applied to be a CSR muna sa Call Center,I told myself that eto muna habang naghihintay ng tawag. But you know what, I left that job, because I felt burnt-out already and I wanted to pursue my career in nursing. Take note regular na ako dun sa Call Center na yun, but I resigned because Iwasn't enjoying it anymore.

    After nun, I did what I really really hated pumayag n mg-VN sa isang hospital dito. Of course, I'm thankful for the experience since I was put sa OR. BUT, I didn't renew my VN contract for another 6 months,dahil nahihiya na ako sa parents ko. I told myself that after I graduated di na ako hihingi sa kanila. I felt ashamed and depressed at the same time.

    Minsan nga iniisip ko na anong petsa na..2008 ako grumaduate but up until now, mgeexpire na lang license ko nxt year wala pa din.So what I did, I made a PRACTICAL decision. It's not the best, but like what I said it's practical. Bumalik ako sa Call Center, am I enjoying it???NO. BUT AM I HELPING MY PARENTS??BIG YES. And as of now gusto ko muna mag-focus dun. Sa ngayon, kasi I feel na di ka dapat choosy sa trabaho. Ayoko nga sa Call Center,BUT sila lang yung tumatawag sa'kin. Kung hihintayin ko na tawagan ako ng hospital,bka 30yrs old na ako nun. I don't want to be a pessimist,but it's true. Being a hired in a hospital right now requires LUCK,IN THE FORM OF A BACKER. Will I forget Nursing?NO. If given the chance at tawagan ako. BABALIK PA DIN AKO SA NURSING.
