Bonjour. Mabuhay.

Para sa mga nurses na may planong mag-abroad, may opening sa Switzerland according to this information:


THE Philippine Embassy in Switzerland is looking into the possibility of opening doors for Filipino healthcare workers to Switzerland to address the problem of oversupply of Filipino nurses in the Philippines.

In this relation, a bilateral working group met in Manila under the auspices of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) to discuss the procedures on how a bigger number of Filipino trainees could avail of the training program in Switzerland.

The embassy is studying how Filipino healthcare workers can work in Swiss hospitals by starting as trainees.

As this develops, two Filipino trainees of Swiss company APM Technica, Shera Cardinal and Rianne Cabiao, called on Ambassador Leslie J. Baja at the embassy in Berne on September 9.

APM Technica is a full-service adhesive and surface technology provider and has a facility in the Philippine Economic Zone in Cabuyao, Laguna.

For several years now, APM Technica headed by Mr. Stefan Mattle, has brought at least two trainees from the Philippines every 18 months to work at their headquarters in Heerbrugg in eastern Switzerland.

This program is being undertaken under the Philippines-Switzerland Agreement on the Exchange of Professional and Technical Trainees. – http://www.journal.com.ph/index.php/news/national/13628-switzerland-eyed-for-ph-nurses
