In an interview over Inquirer.net, Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) chair Leonor Tripon Rosero said that the results of the December 1 and 2, 2007 Nurse Licensure Examination will be released Thursday February 21, 2008.

A nursing blog (not Pinoy R.N.) erroneously reported a supposed quote from a member of the PRC-Board of Nursing saying that the results would come out by February 20, 2008. As a result, thousands of nursing examinees flocked to the PRC website (www.prc.gov.ph) which resulted to the server going down due to limited internet hosting bandwidth.

In the same Inquirer.net interview, Rosero said that the national passing rate was 43.42 percent. She added that it was “within the usual range.”

Pinoy R.N. will post the results here as soon as it is officially released by the PRC.

DoLE Sets up Canada Desk for OFW Deployment to Canada






The Department of Labor and Employment (DoLE) has set up a Canadian Desk tasked to handle queries and coordinate with concerned agencies on matters relating to the deployment of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to Canada.

Labor and Employment Secretary Arturo D. Brion issued Administrative Order No. 53, series of 2008, providing for the setting up of the Canadian Desk at the Office of the DOLE Secretary in Intramuros, Manila. Director Salome Mendoza of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) was designated to head the desk.

Brion said the Canadian Desk would be the Secretary's arm in coordinating with the Canadian provinces of Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Manitoba in activities relating to the deployment of OFWs to these provinces as provided for in the labor agreements entered into by the DOLE and the governments of the three Canadian provinces. The POEA, as mandated by law, will continue to handle the actual deployment activities.

He added that the Desk would also attend to queries from workers seeking employment in Canada.

Brion signed the agreements with the provincial governments of Saskatchewan and British Columbia in December 2007 and January this year, respectively. He also signed a similar agreement with Premier Gary Doer of Manitoba during the latter's recent visit in Manila.

The DoLE Chief is also expected to sign another labor agreement with the Canadian province of Alberta by March of this year. Other Canadian provinces have expressed interest in entering into a labor agreement with the Philippines.

He said the purpose of the agreements is to strengthen areas of cooperation in the fields of labor, employment, and human deployment and development between the Philippines and the respective Canadian provinces.

The agreements, he said, specifically provide for an ethical, orderly, and expeditious recruitment and deployment of OFWs to Canada, non-collection of placement fees, and for the provinces to encourage employers to support human resource development efforts for OFWs as well as the reintegration of returning OFWs to the Philippines.

He stressed that the OFWs' rights and welfare will also be protected in accordance with Philippine laws and regulations and those prevailing in the Canadian provinces.

"The forging of agreements with the Canadian provinces is a milestone in the national efforts to ensure decent working conditions and the continuous training and successful reintegration of OFWs," he said, adding "the government is managing migration in such a way that the interests of OFWs in Canada will be well protected."

Canada's interest for OFWs underscores its recognition of the Filipinos' capability to help address its skills shortages. Alberta, for instance, has a booming oil and gas industry and is projected to be requiring around 400,000 workers in the next two years.

British Columbia, on the other hand, will be in need of hospitality and construction workers as it gears itself to host the 2010 Winter Olympics. It wants to attract 30,000 contract and permanent migrant workers with specific skills per year.

Canada is also in need of workers in the healthcare and education sectors. For more details, the DoLE-POEA Desk can be reached through its hotline number (02) 523-3633 or e-mail address dolecanada@yahoo.com.

EB-3 Dates Jump to January 2005






RETROGRESSION UPDATE

The U.S. Department of State released its March 2008 Visa Bulletin a few days back and it reflected a significant update on the priority dates for the EB-3 visa category.

Those petitioned under the EB-3 visa category before January 1, 2005 can expect movement on their visa processing anytime soon.


The EB-3 employment visa is an immigrant visa which allows foreign nationals who are skilled workers, professionals or other type of workers to enter into the U.S. to obtain permanent residency.


The EB-3 category includes:
1. Professionals with a baccalaureate degree (EB-3A);
2.
Aliens with at least two years of experience as skilled workers (EB-3B); and
3. Other workers with less than two years experience, such as an unskilled worker who can perform labor for which qualified workers are not available in the United States (EB-3C).

Nursing Employment Prospects in Canada








Over the past days, newspapers and television newscasts have been reporting about prospective jobs in Canada for various kinds filipino workers in the fields of construction, information technology, and healthcare among others. On top on the list for professional workers in great demand are registered nurses.


In an advisory on its website, the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) said that several provinces in Canada have adopted a Provincial Nominee Program to facilitate the entry of immigrants to its labor force.

It added that the Canadian Human Resources and Social Development reported that 1.9 million new jobs will be created over the next decade (2006 – 2015) particularly in the Western provinces of Canada such as Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

This, indeed, is a welcome development for filipino nurses who are looking for alternative foreign employment opportunities in the face of the current visa backlog for nurses wanting to migrate and work legally in the United States. At the moment, the visa backlog is retrogressed up to 5 years back and the possibility of it being lifted in the near future is dim until after the U.S. presidential elections in November.

However, what the newpaper articles and T.V. newcasts failed to report is that a duly licensed registered nurse in the Philippines does not automatically qualify for a nursing job in Canada. Like the United States, Canada mandates anyone wishing to practise nursing in their jurisdiction to take and pass the Canadian Registered Nurse Examination (CRNE) and like any other exam, there are costs associated with it. This means that the prospect of finding employment and subsequent migration to Canada as a registered nurse is not as easy as it sounds.

Meanwhile, the Canadian Nurses Association is predicting a continued shortage of nurses in the near future thus necessitating the need to hire international/foreign nurses. This is a golden opportunity for the Philippines--being the world's biggest exporter of the best nurses. Since Canada is in dire need of nurses from the Philippines, perhaps now is the best time for the Philippine government to negotiate for some special agreement with Canada like mutual license recognition between the two countries (reciprocity) or licensure by endorsement, or a local CRNE testing center.

There's a popular idiomatic expression that goes, "
Beggars can't be choosers" and in this case, I don't think the word 'beggar' refers to the Philippines.
