This is the first time that a nurse’s appointment was considered a state government’s achievement.
Appointment of nurses on permanent jobs is one of the rare events after the 2000s. The central government and many state governments are taking initiatives to promote nurses’ migration to high-income countries. WHO India report on the review of the international migration of nurses from the state of Kerala, India recommends that Indian nurses are in high demand, therefore, states need to promote their recruitment and they also recommend individual nurses learn foreign languages like German, and Japanese so that their scope migrations are high.
We nursing community appreciate the government for recruiting nurses permanently rather than contractual or outsourcing.
