Corine Latour, director of HvA Nursing School: ‘These ambitious, smart, and state-of-the-art trained nurses want to start their specialization in IC or First Aid right away. Instead, they are discouraged by hospitals who force them to work in a general ward for a year. Hospitals should adjust to a new generation of nurses with specialized and evidence-based training. If they would, less nurses would quit their jobs within a few years. Instead of looking abroad for nurses, we should encourage talented and ambitious nurses in our own country.’
