Re: Quotas and future immigration votations thoughts

Makes sense given the Swiss education scheme. Most nurses are trained as a job, while nurses in the US and UK, apparently earn a degree in the process. Although some nurses in the US are recipients of diplomas or associate degrees, but those positions may be less responsible and less well paid.
Even in the US Associate degree nurses are phasing out, particularly in the economic downturn...Worse still, since new graduating nurses require more investment from hospitals to take on & initially train many new grads have been without work...for years!

The nursing education system en Suisse is changing and they're modeling it more towards the US system with Bachelor's degree as well as Masters and even Nurse Practitioner options

There are changes needed and they appear to be heeding it, going into most units en Suisse you'll find an amalgamation of nurses/physicians from different countries and education that fail to have a unified SOP, charting or skill sets...It can be unbelievably chaotic and I have a hard time understanding how it has managed to go on this long like that...But, it does appear changes are on the way...slowly but surely ala les Suisse
