This may help explain the nursing shortage

Sent in by a professional:

was talking to a couple of overseas-trained theatre the other day. Both had had to undergo a month-long course in “cultural safety/ implications etc” before they could get their  NZ nursing registration, all at a cool cost of over $11,000 each!  Followed by an exam on the topic.  Needless to say they never once got examined on their clinical nursing competence!!

We might get more wanting to come and work here if we didn’t charge them $11,000 for cultural safety training!
