WHY S’POREANS REFUSE TO WORK IN THE NURSING INDUSTRY

I have been observing the healthcare industry for many years and had worked in the industry for a long time. There is a perennial shortage of Singaporean nurses in our hospitals. The short fall is conveniently compensated by the recruitment of foreign trained nurses, who have huge problems communicating with the elderly patients in the hospitals. The question comes to mind as to why the healthcare institutions in Singapore are unable to attract locals to join the industry as nurses.

OVERSEAS GRADUATE: 6 MONTHS ALREADY BUT I STILL CANT FIND A JOB DESPITE BEING A DEGREE HOLDER

It's been 6 months since I came back and I've not managed to get any job offers despite going for numerous interviews. Even civil service is hard. 4 interviews I had with the civil service asked me why I left my job with CPF to go overseas to study. Some companies outrightly told me that my 5 years of work experience was not related to communications hence they treat me as a fresh graduate. I find it absurd that I'm asking the same salary as what I was getting before I completed my degree.

S’POREAN MADE BIGGEST MISTAKE TO RELOCATE BACK HOME

I am a 50+ years old Singaporean. Not able to get into the local university because PAP said we are not good enough (back then they already planned to reserve places in local university for the foreign students, and kept daft Singaporeans in total darkness, including myself). End up I went overseas for my degree, and also studied for free for my Masters in Engineering paid by my company in US, which I got my first job in (it’s part of the employee benefits to advance his/her study). After graduated and worked in US for almost 10 years, I made the biggest mistake of my life to come home, because I love my country and my family (I have 8 siblings).

However, in recent years, the Government has imposed curbs on foreign labour, with the aim of encouraging companies to consider hiring Singaporeans before turning to foreigners. Some measures include increasing the minimum salary requirements for foreign labour, making it even harder for these graduates to get jobs here.
