Number of Polish nurses seen declining
March 27, 2014
Poland faces a massive shortage of nurses in the coming years as the number of new nurses will be too small to replace those who will retire, the daily Gazeta Wyborcza reports.
If current trends hold, in ten years the number of nurses will decline to 184,000 while the country will need 340,000, the daily writes.
Even today the number of nurses: 5.4 per 1,000 citizens is the lowest in the EU.
