Will nursing jobs in the US be outsourced?

I was just reading an article about nurses in the Philippines going to other countries to work.

The most popular college degree in the Philippines today is nursing. More than 100,000 Filipino nurses have left the country to seek better opportunities. According to the Department of Health, 85 percent of the country’s total number of licensed nurses are to be found in the hospitals of other countries.

What does this mean for current US nursing students? Will they have difficulty in finding a job or will they earn less money in the coming years?
