Getting an education here in our country is a pride that most parents believe in. It is the highlight for most people’s lives and not being able to get one is tantamount to being a failure or being unsuccessful in life. That is why many people strive hard to attain a college degree as this does not only become a source of pride for them, it can also be a guarantee that they could get a decent paying job in the future.
In the country, there are some professions that become in trend for a certain period of time. These professions become so in demand that almost all of the enrolling students in college often prefer to take courses that are related to these kinds of jobs. Such has happened to the nursing degree. It was so in demand for a certain period of time that almost everybody who was planning to proceed to college only had one degree in mind and that was nursing. Yet, for those who have been fortunate enough to pass the NLE board exam results December 2010, and all the other Nursing board exams in the previous years, things may not be as bright as what they had expected when they first decided to take up nursing.
It was already quite evident yet people were not paying much attention. Added to this, a lot of people were saying that the demand for nurses abroad will still continue for years to come. That is why no particular actions were taken in order to help assess if those who were already taking up the said degree would have guaranteed jobs when they graduate, whether in the local or international scope.
The problem, though, is that the number of both registered and unregistered nurses that are unemployed is continuously rising, especially now with the Nursing Board exam results December 2010 more nurses will be added to the list of those who are in the brink of desperation to look for employment. In fact, the competition is so stiff that these nursing graduates often land in jobs that are far from what they have been trained in their education with salaries that do not come close to what their parents have spent for their nursing degree. Added to this, there are even those who had to pay hospitals and medical establishments just so they could be allowed to work.
Such will be the fate of those passers and non-passers of the NLE Results December 2010 and all the other Nursing board exams in the previous years. It is such a sad thing to happen for a profession that should get so much respect and admiration.
