Ministry of Health, Singapore estimates that currently, 58000 healthcare and nurses are available in the country. And this number needs to get increased to 82000 by 2030.
Singapore is all set to search for foreign workers to support the current local nurses who are caring for the elderly people of the country. The healthcare system in Singapore is in requirement of 24,000 nurses from foreign nations by 2030.
At present 72 percent of Singaporeans and permanent residents are among the 63% registered and enrolled nurses. And the rest are from China, India, the Philippines, Myanmar, Malaysia, and other countries.
Looking at the rising competition for international nurses, Singapore Government might grant PR to the best performers.
By 2030, one in four Singaporeans will be aged 65 or above. Hence there is a high requirement for caregivers for elderly people. Singapore also increased the bed capacity in nursing homes.
As there is no emigration among the local nurses, so the government is putting efforts to increase the intake of students in the nursing department from 2,100 to 2,300.
As the Singapore government foresees a big manpower crunch for palliative care or aged care, foreign healthcare workers are going to be recruited to play a major role in the next coming years.
Singapore has a huge demand for foreign nurses currently. Singapore is also trying to increase the number of family physicians and trained doctors and the target is 3500 by 2030.
