Facts and figures
Approximately 45% of all nurses and nursing assistants drop out during their training. After about two years 14% of the graduates is no longer employed in health care. This is presented in labour market forecasts made by SEOR among employees in health care and welfare services. Together with a large number of health care and educational institutions, the Research Centre Innovations in Care of the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences will start a four year study into the causes of drop out amongst nursing students and new graduate nurses.
