2,000 Nurses Due to Retire


Scary headline from the Star Phoenix.

If there is an upcoming crisis in the supply of labour in Saskatchewan for nurses, why doesn’t the Government and the U of S partner with universities in the Philippines to upgrade and accredit their programs to Saskatchewan standards?  This could be a win-wind because the Government of the Philippines will pay for their education and training and Saskatchewan gets to hire the graduates.  At the same time, the Philippines benefits from having a first class education and training system to benefit their own population.

Maybe increasing pay is not the only option.
