Inter-area/Border Crossing

Organized Panel Session

1 - International Stepwise Migration and Career Pathways of Philippine-Educated Nurses in Asian Destinations

Friday, July 6
2:40 PM - 4:10 PM
Location: Maple, Lower Ground Floor

The tightening of policies and regulations in the international recruitment of nurses particularly in the most preferred destinations such as the United States and United Kingdom in the mid-2000s and the proliferation of nursing schools and surge in the number of nursing students, made complicated by the presence of time lag and unpredictability of the labor market, have resulted in an estimated unemployment and/or underemployment of 500,000 professional nurses in the Philippines. As a rational response, many Philippine-educated nurses have taken up jobs other than bedside medical care staff nurses, most notably as care workers, representatives in call centers and educators. Using survey data of Philippine-educated nurses in Japan, Singapore, and Thailand, this presentation investigates the current trends and their motivations in taking up such “alternative” career choices and examines them within the context of their “two-dimensional” (location and job preferences) international stepwise migration behavior.
