How come? It doesn't make any sense. I heard some senator mention it in the Seanad (FF if I'm not mistaken - pandering to the gallery no doubt) But I'd often thought about that before. The last time I had to go to A&E it was a nurse from the Philippines as far as I can recall who dealt with me. Of course there are Irish nurses in the system too. But can someone explain to me how Irish nursing graduates have to emigrate because they can't get work here...yet at the very same time non-EU nurses are employed here by the HSE and private hospitals? This simply doesn't make any sense especially at a time when the country is on its knees.
This isn't a "let's send em all packing" thread. I 'm just trying to figure out the logic? Thanks.
