Local firm gears up to grab US nursing jobs

A local healthcare professional recruiting firm has set a target to grab at least 10 percent market share of nurses in the US in the next 10 years.

As part of the firm's export plan, the first batch of 20 nurses will sit for US nursing board examination and an English test at the end of this year.
“We will be able to send nurses to the US from early next year,” said Shaheen Faruque, president and chief executive officer of Momtaz Memorial Medical Services Bangladesh, a US-Bangladesh partnership.

She said they have been developing and training 20 nurses under a pilot project since 2007. The next batch has already been selected for training, she added.
