THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: To curb down the massive outflow of nurses to foreign lands, the government has allotted Rs 20 crore in its budget to start 25 nursing colleges in hospitals across the state. With an average of 60 seats, almost 1500 additional students can now join on nursing course.

Keralakaumudy reported earlier about the 23,000 and more nurses who went offshore in just nine months. With the news getting widespread reach, the government nurses union and other affiliate organizations beseeched the government to start more nursing colleges across the state. Considering the request, the health department assigned a nursing council to look into this issue. KN Balagopal while presenting Budget shed light on the omnipresence of Malayali nurses across the globe. With this prudent move from the government, the job opportunities for nursing faculties will also see a rise.
