As reported by 24 ORAS News Program of GMA-7, Nursing course is the top choice of many enrollees this year. It's a 'hot pandesal syndrome' which means a top choice among enrollees from 'word-of-mouth' spreads just like a replicating virus. I am not surprised, Nursing jobs abroad are high salaried careers, even licensed medical doctors here who are colleagues of mine took up nursing and now are abroad working as nurses !
