Barbados: PM Mottley seeks to stem exodus of nurses

The Government of Barbados has proposed a national programme to stem the exodus of nurses. 
 
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley says the government will be making overtures of good faith, likening the loss of human capital to precious foreign reserves. 
 
Accordingly, she has sought to assure the nursing community that an earlier promise of establishing the post of special nurses, which was derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic, will now be pursued as a matter of urgency.
 
She says her administration has committed to adding four Specialist Nurse positions, which will be equivalent to that of Assistant Director of Nursing 
 
Other plans include an education thrust for nursing, with the Prime Minister stressing that this must also include a reshaping of the younger generation's perception of the profession.
