Nursing and HRM are still the top students’ choices in college

The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) said that Nursing and Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM) are still the top college degrees preferred by incoming college students this school year.

Despite reports of dwindling demand for nurses in other countries, CHED chairman Emmanuel Angeles said that young people would continue choosing Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Hotel and Restaurant Management courses.

A final tally of the enrollment in college degree programs have not yet been gathered due to the ongoing enrolment in many colleges and universities but Angeles said that the initial figures had not shown any major shift in the preferred courses of students.

According to CHED, Nursing, HRM, Information Technology (IT), Elementary Education and Computer Science are the college degree courses with the highest number of enrollees.

There are 422,978 enrollees of Nursing for the academic year 2008 to 2009. HRM had 123,523, IT, 115,605, Elementary Education, 95,725 and Computer Science, 95,134.
