Sa ngayon ang dami daming nurses sa Pinas. At sabi ng DOLE ay maraming nurses ngayon ang walang trabaho.Karamihan sa mga pinoy ang  kinukuha na course ay nursing,  ang iba nagsesecond course as nursing,  ang iba doctor na pero kukuha pa rin ng nursing. Dati uso ang caregiver, physical therapist and now nursing pero unfortunately nawawala na rin ang demand ng nurse sa USA, UK, Canada etc. At may iba namang  nurses  ay nagiiba na lang ng trabaho bilang call centers agents, medical reps, medical transcriptionist, cashiers etc. May mga nurses din na nagbabayad sa ospital para lang sila magkaexperience imbes na sila ang sweldohan. At sa ngayon dumami ang nursing review centers sa buong bansa.

I want to share an article about NURSES job at napansin ko may similarities ang mga nurses at callcenter agents sa trabaho nila. Especially numbers 1,3 (just verbal abuse), 4, 9 10


1) Must be able to work long hours with frequent
mandatory overtime and regularly missed meal and coffee breaks. Few
holidays or weekends off.

2) Must be able to keep massive amounts of paperwork
up to date while making split second life and death decisions.

3) Must be unaffected by frequent verbal abuse and
able to neutralize occasional physical assaults.

4) Must display patience, kindness, and understanding
at all times. The ability to effectively communicate with people who are
illiterate, uneducated, insane, hysterical or enraged is required.

5) Must show no aversion to blood, vomit, oozing infections or human body waste. Job involves daily exposure to infectious bacteria and viruses as
well as radiation and carcinogenic medications.

6) Frequent staffing shortages necessitate your ability to prioritize and efficiently carry out the work of 2 or 3 people.

7) Applicants must possess a keen interest in coping with grief, uncertainty, depression and loss on a daily basis.

8) As a part of the multidisciplinary team you will be expected to collaborate with clerical and janitorial staff, physicians, respiratory technicians, social workers, Chaplains and Priests, security guards, physical and occupational therapists, laboratory and x-ray technicians, maintenance personnel, and dietitians. You are required to have an understanding of all the roles and responsibilities of these team members as you will be required to carry out many of their duties in addition to your own.

9)Must show humility and accept blame when frequently asked to be the scapegoat for the failures and frustrations of doctors, administrators, supervisors, and coworkers.

10) Must be willing to confuse your body clock and abuse your body with frequent shift rotations and malnutrition due to gorging on fast food when you finally do get to eat in the car on the way home from work.

11) Must have 3 sets of legs and ten hands so you can be in 3 different places at a time and juggling a variety of tasks to make up for the 3 missing nurses that administration says you don't need for a safe patient-nurse ratio.

12) Must be willing to risk losing your job when you are out with a disabling back injury or acute hepatitis C infection acquired on the job. Even if you win your fight to prove it is job related and collect your worker's comp, your employer will do their darndest to find a loophole and try to get rid of the 'burden.' Don't expect full pay and benefits for up to two years the way other hazardous jobs like policeman and firemen get.

13) Oh, and of course, even though you work in a germ factory, abuse your physical and emotional health through work conditions, and are regularly plagued with low morale, don't EVER EVER expect to call in sick to work unless you have the bubonic plague, or in a coma. Must be a SAINT!

14) Salary is in no way commensurate with knowledge, ability or experience.

15) Due to the frequency with which employees develop physical injury and
emotional breakdown, we are pleased to offer a comprehensive benefits


Lahat ng trabaho mahirap wala namang trabaho na madali sa totoo lang


  1. so papa milch, may naka-date ka na ba na nurse? fetish mo ba yung naka-uniform? teka ha bibili lang ako ng puting tela at magpapatahi sa sastre sa kanto. white stockings and shoes ok with you? joooke!

  2. siyanga pala. ganda ng bagong layout ha.

  3. grabe ang stress ng trabaho ng nurse. buti di ko pinili ang nursing kundi pahirapan mag-apply. Ayoko pa naman ng mga ilan sa trabaho ng nurse. parang trabaho ng 4 na tao

  4. Tama nga most ng mga nasa taas, kaso minsan understatement pa mga yan.

  5. Ganyan kahirap ang trabaho ng mga nurse... They deserve a just compensation, indeed. Yan lang nman ang papasukin kong mundo, good luck to me, hahaha!

    World of Vhincci

  6. @sean
    wala pa eh. sure ayos hahahaha

    yup hirap din trabaho ng nurse tapos dito
    maliit pa sahod


    good luck hehehehe

  7. most of thse who took nursing really wanted to work abroad particularly in the US. bad news lang para sa kanila because now, before they can take NCLEX exam, they must have a US social security number. and the only way they can get that is if they are US citizens or if they are in the US and have a working permit. tsk tsk!

  8. anu pa nga ba.. hay parang ang nurse dito sa Pinas ay pambansang kurso..

  9. I have lots of friends na nurses dito, and altho they get paid well, very stressful nman daw ang job nila. But hey, ganun tlaga proportionate sa workload mo ang sahod...dito yun sa US...

    pero from what i hear sa Pinas, medyo hindi ganun ka lucky ang mga nurses, masyado yatang mababa ang salary nila..

  10. Lahat ng naka date ko nursing grad. LOL


    Anyway, goodluck sa mga RNs natin! isa na dun mga kapatid ko na call center ang binagsakan.

  11. Naku, di kaya ng utak ko ang course na yan!
