In a recent announcement from the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), we’ve learned that Germany and Japan are currently in need for more nurses and caregivers.
A GMA News online report also tells us that the Philippines and the Federal Government of Germany’s “Triple Win Project” has opened slots for 70 ICU nurses in the European country. This project aims to fill Germany’s shortage of nurses by hiring professional nurses not only from the Philippines but also Bosnia, Herzegovina, and Serbia. Those interested to apply for the job should have a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree and a valid Philippine Nursing license. Those who will be hired can expect to receive a monthly salary of 2,000 euros (or about P119,000.00).
On the other hand, Japan has confirmed that they need about 48 nurses and 585 registered caregivers.
