Because of the unemployment that nurses are facing here in the Philippines, I think it would also be a good move to have an alternative career that still uses your medical background as a nurse rather than being unemployed.
One good choice is to be a medical transcriptionist. As an unemployed nurse myself, I decided to take up MT Course and I've been working as a transcriptionist for the past 3 years. For medical-allied professionals like us, we get to finish the course faster than regular students (w/o medical background).
If you have any questions about this field, feel free to ask me and I will try to answer as best as I can to help other unemployed nurses out there.
If you are interested with the MT School where I took up MT Course, I can also give you their contact information.
