Most of the Nurses are underpaid and forced to work long hours in most of the hospitals and clinics. There is no proper plans and wage/salary policies to nurses like many other professions. The other fact is there is high demand of nurse but CMA ,ANM are still working as Nurse thus there is no difference between Staff Nurse, B.sc, BN nurse. There is very limited scope for Nursing manager, Nursing Researcher,Nursing Administrator , Nursing Scientist in Nepal.
Many Nurses or nursing students plan to move abroad so they don’t complain much about the exploitation of their labor by hospitals since most see their jobs as temporary. Hospitals, doctors, Nursing colleges are making tons of money but their backbone; nurses are always underpaid and not given much importance and recognition they deserve. This is the sad part about Nursing in Nepal.
Talking about job prospects, it is relatively easy to find a job since turnover is high and many nurses move abroad leaving positions vacant for new applicants. The scope of nursing be it Bsc Nursing, staff nurse, BN is increasing with increase in number of hospitals, care homes and clinics.
