actually its already happening on the hospitals here in the PI. they have trainings, but i feel that the hospital mgt should give great importance to the trainings and the trainees and dont just treat it as a "formalization" that a nurse applicant must go thru before working on the floor..what happens is, whether the nurse applicant isnt good enough yet or qualified, the hospital still let these applicants to work and serve clients..even critical clients.
I think the reason for that would be the shortage of nurses. Some hospitals are desperate to hire nursing that even if they're not qualified, they are being hired! Like in the Saudi embassy. even if the nurses or should I say future nurses have no license yet, they sign a contract to work as nurses! I can't blame them!
First reason: Poverty! Let's be honest! It's really hard to explain this part because it branches to everything...
Second: Students studying nursing for what? Every 6 months, there are new nurses not less than 10,000. Let's just say, 20,000 a year! Have you ever wonder where they are? If all of them work in difference hospitals here in the Philippines, would there still be a shortage of nurses? We can't deny the fact that most of our nursing student now are being forced to study nursing! It's because of reason number 1!
Third: No supporters? Sometimes, it seems that there is no certain association that helps nurses when it comes to Nursing matters! WE can only hear from them if there are dancers, waitresses who wears nursing uniform
and a big issue that affects all nurses here in the Philippines that makes us look bad in other countries!
There are still lots of factors to address to! All I can say is that, I hope the soon to be nurses, future nursing student should really think what they want in life... Because if money is always in your mind why you took up nursing, it's as if there's no life in the service your giving.... And as for the nurses, don't be desperate to live the country!
I know the low salary is the primary reason for that, but please, try to serve your contry first before serving other country! And as for the people in position, be vigilant on what is really happening to nursing profession and I do hope if that we can hear from them even without an issue... Make an effort to improve the nursing profession!
