More Filipino Nurses in Finland

The issue of elderly care crisis in Finland is a hot topic in the country. Recently, home care companies have been involved in recent scandals such as understaff and underpaid Nurses and elderly patients not getting the right care they deserve.


Recently, the Foreign Minister of Finland published on his blog about Filipino Nurses. He mentioned that the solution to this crisis is the recruitment of Filipino Nurses and fill the nursing shortage in the country. According to him, Filipino Nurses are hard-working and good people with high morale.

It has been many years already since the Embassy of Finland to the Philippines has been closed and it would be wise for the country to revive its cooperation with the Philippines by opening back the Embassy and strengthen its relation as it would be beneficial for both countries.



Filipino Nurses Association-Nordic is a Non-Profit Organisation which aims in empowering Filipino Internationally Educated Nurses living in the Nordic Region. Founded in October 2018 to address the needs of Filipino Nurses and help future Filipino Nurses on how to become Registered Nurses in the Nordic Region.
