Välkommen! Welcome! Mabuhay!

The Guild of Filipino Nurses in Sweden was established in 2020 to address the needs and challenges of Filipino Nurses living in Sweden. As private employers recruit Filipino Nurses since 2010, it is important that a non-profit organization exist to understand the phenomenon of nurse migration in the country and create better policies to improve the integration and working condition of Filipino Nurses in the Swedish social and health system.
