The total BS Nursing graduates reached 67,728 in the same year. More than 70,000 (adding the number of those who did not pass the board exam in their previous attempt/s) were expected to take the June 2008 Nursing Board Examination given and administered by the Philippine Regulation Commission (PRC). How many of these examinees will pass the board exam? This goes to show that many of our nursing graduates in the Philippines are either unemployed or underemployed.
The unemployment rate of nurses/nursing graduates could be between 50,000-60,000 per year.
