If you work in the industry of nursing jobs, a nursing agency or even in a nursing recruitment agency, you’ll understand how important it is to gain new training and experience. This new partnership between the US and the Caribbean will see nurses work in the NHS for a total of three years so they can take their training back with them. This is really going to benefit the Jamaican health system. The new partnership is going to be a huge extension on the earn, learn and return system that is in place. The people who are behind this have hopes that 5,500 international nurses would then be recruited from the Philippines and India.
The department said that the nurses who come from Jamaica will undertake a placement in the UK and that this would be facilitated by the Health Education England group. They would then work in the intensive care sector or in emergency medicine.
They would go back to their home country to share their experience, knowledge and training with their own healthcare and this would benefit everyone.
NHS staff would be given the chance to travel and share their expertise and the aim of the scheme is to try and support the Jamaican government. Not only will this increase their workforce, but it will also give help to them and the people who need nursing care.
The UK has been hit by a huge nursing crisis and there are just not enough staff to be filling the required posts. People are delighted at this decision and they are also very happy to be seeing more and more people entering the industry. This should help out everyone who is involved and it will certainly go a long way when it comes to getting people the training they need.
