IELTS Summary 9 Nurse Migration
There are many nurses today than any time in history, but nursing shortage still a problem in both developing and developed countries. In developing countries, many qualified nurses working abroad to wealthier countries to get better salary and better quality of life while at their home nurse position go unfilled or just nurses with rudimentary training. In developing countries some patients go untreated not because drugs are unavailable but because there are not enough nurses to care them.
In developed countries like Europe and North America health care services are largely needed because of largely amount of elderly. Otherwise, underinvestment in nursing education cause decline of qualified nurses for future needs. For example, nursing school refuse many qualified applicants because of their shortage of nursing faculty. Developed country need to invest in nursing education and focus on retaining and rewarding nurses appropriately.
