my hat's off to you.
indeed, the nursing profession needs a transformation.
this is what i have been looking for all these years. and people should continue to talk about it. this should be in the topic for the next PNA annual convention.
let's talk about issues. because if we do not talk about it, the majority will think that there is no problem.
don't get me wrong...it is only right for people to seek better pay. a better work place. a better life. and i'm not against immigration either. i know it's a naturally occuring phenomenon. my paternal grandmother was a chinese immigrant from macau. all the members of my family are in new zealand...and if i go back there, nobody will sign for the balikbayan box
but maybe that is not the issue. maybe the remittances sent back to the philippines is not the issue. (it certainly is not the solution...millions of dollars have come in and thousands of people still go abroad
there are lots of issues concerning the exodus of nurses from the philippines to other countries, but, realistically, we can't do anything about it. so let's focus on our nurses left here in the philippines...who i should say, are not rotting here...but are simply overworked and underpaid...not to mention unappreciated.
maybe if we talk about the present condition of our profession here in the philippines, we will see the real issues that we should be concerned about, and from there, we can find solutions to those issues. and maybe we can find ways of helping out our fellow nurses here in the philippines.
thanks for all your replies to this thread.
