Nursing colleges in the UAE are failing to recruit Emirati nurses
Nursing colleges in the UAE are failing to recruit Emirati nurses, despite government-funded sweeteners including full scholarships, the dean of a prominent nursing school has claimed.
Dr Vijaya Kumaradhas, dean of Ras Al Khaimah College of Nursing, one of the country's largest nursing schools, has said Emirati students remain significantly under-represented - a fact that is contributing to the country's nursing shortage.
"There is a definite shortage, but Emiratis will not become nurses. There is a stigma where nursing is concerned. In our college, we don't have any local student." she said.
