Newly qualified nurses take pictures after an oath-taking ceremony in Manila March 17, 2008. Around 12,000 newly qualified nurses took their oaths in Manila on Monday. Thousands of Filipino healthcare staff, including doctors, leave the Philippines every year for better paid jobs overseas, resulting in a shortage of well-qualified staff at home.
