    1. Large, well educated English speaking population

    2. Education infrastructure set up for Western based nursing education

    3. Depressed wages at home

    4. Mobile population used to the demands of immigration, ie seperation from family, friends (Filipinos having left home for work for decades)

    that sounds like a homework assn. in fact, the wording sounds exactly like a homework assn, 'primary source country', 'enumerate', etc.

    They are taking advantage of that demand for nurses, not only in the USA but abroad and in places like the Saudi Arabia. I'm not sure that they particularly are in demand, but the fact they are educated with such high standards as to pass NCLEX, makes them marketable in the USA and elsewhere.

    I think as was stated above, their excellent command of language and their high standards in education make them desirable.

    same reason they are one of the leading primary source countries for sex workers.
    lots of females in an impoverished economy who find they have a "skill" they can trade for $.
