Work-study program for RP nurses in UK By Margaux Ortiz Inquirer Last updated 09:47pm (Mla time) 09/26/2007 MANILA, Philippines -- An English University is offering Filipino nurses a work-and-study program that would allow them to work as caregivers in the United Kingdom while earning a two-year nursing degree. Their work, for which they will receive salaries, is actually part of the study program because a lot of the learning is work-based, Stringer said. Once they have completed their two-year Bachelor in Science in Health and Social Care program, Stringer said there will be better job opportunities for them in the UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. Stringer said that interested applicants need not have licenses, only a degree in nursing. Anglia Ruskin University is located near Chelmsford and Cambridge, an hour's drive from London. It is offering the degree course to groups of 12 to 15 students. Those interested in the program may inquire with ISA4U officials at 814-0242.
