Studying abroad is becoming more and more popular with each passing year. Studies show that more than two hundred thousand students from the United States study abroad every year.

Should I study nursing in the Philippines if I am from USA or other countries?

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

if your aiming for BSN, it’s very practical to just get it in the Philippines because its cheaper for the same quality of education (assuming that you’re in a good nursing school) you could get in an average nursing school in the US. However, there’s so many sub-standard nursing schools sprouting like mushrooms in the philippines that you have to be cautious before enrolling yourself in.

Philippines to promote educational services abroad

Sunday, January 3, 2010

December 31, 2009   The government would aggressively promote its educational services abroad to increase its export revenues next year.
The targeted markets are China, Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia and LaMarCa (Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia).

The “Study in the Philippines” promotion exhibit resulted in the country’s signing of memorandum of understandings (MoUs) with seven institutions in Vietnam.

BETP is also eyeing export niches through nursing and information technology (IT) programs.
The Center for International Trade Expositions and Missions (CITEM) earlier said the Philippines could also niche on programs such as medicine and English language.

Specialized education is among the priority export industries of the Philippine Export Development Plan (PEDP) for 2008-2010.

Such emerging service, along with health and wellness, medical tourism, logistics and entertainment, have been identified to give focus on the country’s competitive advantage as potential investment in the region and as the most preferred labor resource in the world.  News release

Want to be a nurse? Train in the Philippines

Friday, January 1, 2010

BAY NEWS 9 --Thursday, December 31, 2009  A new nursing school called Nursing Career Connections has initiated an online program.

With the currently shortage of nurses, many students are studying for a career in nursing.
But that's led to another problem: classrooms don't have enough space to accomodate all the students who want to pursue nursing as a career.

A new nursing school called Nursing Career Connections has initiated an online program, where a student can become an LPN after completing classes and a four-month trip to the Phillipines for clinical work.

The Center for Nursing says by 2014 there will be more than 36,000 new nursing jobs available, but nowhere near enough people to fill those jobs.
Welcome to Nursing Career Connections, your immediate source for achieving nursing success through education.
  • Are you currently waiting to gain entrance to a public nursing program?
  • Frustrated by the high costs of private programs?
NCC can help.

With public educational facilities offering only very limited seating per semester for nursing programs and private educational facilities offering seats at a very costly entrance, NCC is bridging the gap between the school and the student, by providing for a unique 9 month online LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) curriculum, then a 4 month clinical study program abroad.

While studying abroad for a medical education is not a new concept, our program is unique for it allows you to do all of the coursework in the comforts of your home. This leaves only the clinical study to be done abroad. This saves you time and money.

Our program costs can be compared to that of a public educational facility. Again making it a very affordable program.

And because we are online, there is no reason why you couldn’t start today!
So don’t put your nursing career on hold, jumpstart your education, register today, start tomorrow…
