Nurses, Goa and migration

Talking about migration by nurses, here's one link. Wonder how Goa is taking to this field... if at all. This is from Trends In International Nurse Migration by Linda H. Aiken, James Buchan, Julie Sochalski, Barbara Nichols and Mary Powell. Its abstract reads: Predicted shortages and recruitment targets for nurses in developed countries threaten to deplete nurse supply and undermine global health initiatives in developing countries. A twofold approach is required, involving greater diligence by developing countries in creating a largely sustainable domestic nurse workforce and their greater investment through international aid in building nursing education capacity in the less developed countries that supply them with nurses.
