Given the (relatively) high profile of Hodges' model as a model of nursing on the web, I wonder if these visits reflect:
- An assumption by potential nurse migrants that Hodges' model is de rigueur here in the UK?
- There are tutors/lecturers teaching the model in the Philippines and directing their students to the site?

- Perhaps the visitors are not primarily nurses?
Whether or not any of the above apply, I would love to hear from our Filipino visitors? How is Hodges' model being used in the Philippines?

All the best.
