News Description

DAILY NEWS - PAGE 1 IOL More than 600 qualified nurses, trained through the Health Department and who have completed their community service learning are sitting at home doing nothing, while public hospitals and clinics struggle with staff shortages. This is according to nursing unions, who say the nurses had signed contracts with the department for a guaranteed four years of work upon completion of the course. They said the latest batch of nurses, who completed their studies last month, added to the backlog of nurses that the department had failed to absorb into the system, apparently due to a lack of funds.
