More and more nurses leaving Slovenia

More and more Slovenian nurses are going in foreign countries because they can earn there for over thousand EUR more. Data reveals that every week competent chamber grants at least four licenses for those nurses who want to work in foreign countries.

Majority goes to Italy and Germany, attractive destinations are also Great Britain and Australia. In Slovenia is expected that there will be a greater drain of nurses due to bad working conditions and bad payment, and also attractive job offers in foreign countries. Some years ago flow of nurses from poorer EU members was expected, but it looks like that Slovenia is not an attractive option for them.

Again Slovenia is not only country in this situation. According to writing of European newspapers, this problems arise also in other EU countries, like United Kingdom for instance.
