Dr. Subhadra Devi Rai  bags the International Achievment award 2015 given by Florence Nightingale International foundation. She is a nurse and lecturer at School of Health Sciences (Nursing) at Nanyang Polytechnic in Singapore.
FNIF is an INC premier foundation. It works for advancement of nursing education, research and services.

The International Achievment award was  introduced first in 1999. This is the first time a Singaporean Nurse is bagging this award.

This award will be presented to Rai on July 21 in conference to be conducted in Seoul for her outstanding work in health of women and refugees.

Speaking to the media, Rai said she felt “honoured and humbled to receive this recognition” and hopes that this award sends a “powerful message to other nurses to serve beyond the healthcare setting”.

Her area of interest focuses on issues such as gender-based violence, sexual health and the reintegration of refugees. Over the years, she had been volunteering and working with different organisations to help and raise policy awareness for these issues.

The NYP lecturer decided to go into teaching when she realised that the younger generation is the key to a better nursing industry in the future.

“Being in this position allows me to inculcate in my students what is it actually is to be a nurse,” she said, adding that she wants to initiate change in the nursing profession by instilling pride of being a nurse in students.

Central govt has issued an order which will come to effect from April 30 2015 banning all private agencies from recruiting nurses to UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain, Jordan, Afghanistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, Syria, Lebanon and Thailand.(includes all Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) Countries).
It means that Nurses will get an immigration clearance only after they apply through the selected agencies ie ODEPC/Norka (both managed by Govt of Kerala) after April 30. Both the agencies will expand their organization in metro cities outside Kerala. More staff will be appointed to handle applications from across the country, said K.C. Joseph, Kerala’s Minister in charge or Norka.

According to the new rule if a foreign nation needs nurses from India it should first approach the External Affairs Ministry of India. We don’t know how far this decision will go practical?
Kerala government will strengthen facilities at the Overseas Development and Employment Promotion Consultants Limited (ODEPC) and Norka after the Centre chose these agencies to exclusively recruit Indian nurses to Gulf and other countries. Already nurses are recruited to Saudi Arabia through ODEPC(15 – 20 % of total recruitment). They charge Rs. 60000/head for any recruitment through ODEPC. That money is told to be used for nurses welfare.

Delegates from ODEPC and Norka are going to Kuwait soon for holding discussions with Indian Embassy and Kuwait Authorities.

The nurses will be selected after a test and interview conducted by officials from the respective countries. ODEPC and Norka will prepare all facilities for them.

Usually in most of the gulf countries, job vacancies in private hospital will be given contract to a huge agency, who will then give sub contract to small agencies. The money collected form applicants are shared between these two agencies. The hospital authorities either don’t know or keep quiet regarding these money matters. This is what usually happens in Indian recruitment scenario. Eventhough govt can take over all govt job recruitment abroad, we have been not assured about these private hospital nursing jobs abroad. Lets wait and see what happens.

Besides this, all recruitment to other countries especially European countries, Australia, Singapore etc will be carried out by agencies. But in all these countries if you are qualified enough to practice there, you can directly apply online through hospital websites or job agencies.

You can register in ODEPC and Norka Roots through online. Since these two are two separate autonomous agencies, you have to register in both if you want to apply for the upcoming job options.
The online registration links are given below

Nurses are an inevitable part of Health care services. In the year 2000, there was much less no of nurses when compared to 2017 But does this mathematics accompany the known slogan ie as Supply Increases, Demand Decreases. Our answer is a Big NO. Some may be astonished to see this answer. We have said this because as time pass on people are becoming more health conscious. More people are coming to hospitals. So the result should be more jobs. Then why every nurse doesn’t get a job that he or she wants?. This is because as supply has increased, recruiters are forced to put upon some cut offs for getting more qualified and knowledgeable nurses ie in the forms of various exams like MOH, DHA, HAAD, Prometric, CGFNS, NCLEX RN, IELTS, TOEFL etc. etc.

But still a question remains, after all these hardships of passing these exams, paper work, bribes (sometimes) etc do nurses are getting nice salaries abroad. In this article, tries to unveil salaries of some of the most sought nurses jobs in middle east. Hopes you find this article a useful one.
