The International Supply of Nurses in Times of the Global Pandemic

The International Supply of Nurses in Times of the Global Pandemic

The Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), which was also known as the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCOV) has the world on its knees. Businesses are shutting down, people are losing their jobs and the number of healthcare workers is steadily dwindling despite the demand for them keeps skyrocketing. 

The major challenges that the country’s healthcare workers struggle with are the decreased capacity of hospitals to accommodate patients, the steady decline of essential needs (masks, medications and supplies) and the everyday exposure of nurses and other health workers to potentially fatal health hazards.

The threats and challenges may be there but that never stopped nurses,  local, international or migrant health workers from doing their part in helping curb the effects of the pandemic; as a matter of fact, those same threats helped in validating the importance of nurses everywhere. 

The demand for properly trained nurses is escalating and to address that, noteworthy training institutions like the Education Training & Employment Australia (ETEA) is offering a Diploma of Nursing learning program to aspiring students who will have the privilege to help the world’s crusade against COVID-19.
