Decrease in number of foreign nurses in Belgium for first time since 2013
In 2017, there were 8,432 non-Belgian nurses working in the country, a number on steady increase since 2013. In 2018 there were 8,164 — a slight decrease.
Belgium has been trying for years to attract nurses from other countries in order to address the staff shortage. Other countries, however, are now facing the same problem. ■
