3,000 male nurses in Saudi unemployed

Some 3,000 male Saudi nursing graduates are still waiting for jobs, reports The Arab News. Dr. Obaid Al-Obaid, vice minister for planning and development at the Ministry of Health, claims there is a surplus of male nurses but a shortage of female nurses in the Kingdom.

Female nurses comprise 35 percent of all nurses working at government hospitals in the Kingdom while male nurses make up 32 percent.

“The number of jobless Saudi male nurses will unfortunately increase by the end of this year to reach 6,000 to 7,000,” said Al-Obaid.
