Open Forum for International International Nurses in Finland

 

The World Health Organization has declared 2020 as the Year of the Nurses and Midwives. Finland has started to recruit foreign/migrant/international nurses to fill the nursing shortage gap in the country. For many years, the voice of foreign nurses have not been heard in a national level. We would like to take the opportunity for the year 2020 to organize an open forum that will include recruitment agencies on their long-term plans in safeguarding the interests and rights of the foreign nurses living in Finland.

The place of the event is under negotiation but it will be in the Helsinki, Region.

We would accommodate maximum of 30 people and the rest will be on the waiting list.
