This is a huge problem the gov't is not addressing. Why are there not enough schools in Switzerland to each these skills? Why are they not expanding the universities and offering more places? I never understood this.
Well, if you have a look at the statistics, it would tell you that the situation in Switzerland is already on a very high level, if not a luxurious one. So a loss would only mean to lose a luxurious position to a still advanced one.

According to OECD the density of nurses in Switzerland is the second highest within all OECD countries, 17 per 1000 inhabitants, just after Norway with 19.

Then compare this to the rest of the OECD members, e.g.:

- USA: 11
- Canada: 10
- Germany: 12
- Australia: 12
- Iceland: 15
- Ireland: 12
- Finland: 13
- UK: 9
- France: 8
- Japan: 10

By the way, the highest life expectancy at birth is currently headed by Switzerland (they just recently overtook Japan, but Japan has to invest quite less than a Swiss person to stay healthy ... probably IMHO because of their much healthier food and nuriture, which also possibly also explains their much less request for nurses ): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_care_in_Switzerland

And what is true about Japan (low health care costs, but highest life expectancy), is also valid for Korea, Greece, Autralia and for France to some extend, for example!

... and by the way, also very true for Italy and Spain.
