Health Carousel Philippines announces commitment to advanced nursing education via funding of scholarships.
As the global demand for skilled nurses continues, the Philippines' nursing schools will benefit from a POEA-Licensed Healthcare Recruitment Agency's support of 10 nursing educators. Health Carousel Philippines, a partner to US healthcare recruitment firm Health Carousel International, has committed to funding 10 scholarships for nursing faculty seeking a master's or Doctoral nursing degree. This significant investment will fund students' course tuition, books, and associated fees at selected nursing schools.
Spotlight on the 'Light the Way' Program
In May 2022, the Health Carousel Philippines' 'Light the Way' Program announced its intention to sponsor the 10 Graduate Degree in Nursing Scholarships. This initiative supports the company's commitment to promoting ethical, sustainable nurse recruitment programs throughout the Philippines. Health Carousel, LLC, the firm's US-based partner, is also dedicated to achieving this admirable goal.
Each superior nursing education institution will choose one or two 'Light the Way' Nurse Scholars. The school's Dean of the College of Nursing will nominate the recipients based on three criteria. Candidates will be selected based on academic excellence, contribution to nursing practice, and their singular desire to perform a nurse educator role.
Through the scholarships' funding, Health Carousel Philippines will help to produce additional master's-prepared and doctorate-prepared nursing faculty. These highly accomplished nursing professionals will infuse a new generation of nursing students with the knowledge and skills needed to excel in patient care.
Health Carousel Philippines' Chairman Endorses the Initiative
Connie de la Cruz, Health Carousel Philippines' Co-Founder and Chairman, addresses concerns about the wisdom of sending healthcare professionals to work in other countries. "There has been an ongoing debate as to whether it is good to send so many of our healthcare professionals abroad, especially during the pandemic.
'Opposing sides say this is brain drain, nurses say it is their right to seek better opportunities overseas, and others say remittances are necessary to the economy. Still, others say higher wages in different occupations are luring nurses away.
'I'm happy to say that Health Carousel Philippines and its 'Light the Way' Scholarship Program is a good thing, regardless of which side of the debate you are on. I'm happy that our success as an organization has afforded us the great honor to be a part of shaping the future of Philippines nursing for years to come. The training of one nurse educator can supply our country and the world with hundreds of nurses in the future,' she concludes.
