Mr Louis Ng Kok Kwang
MP for Nee Soon GRC
Question No. 2429
To ask the Minister for Health in the past five years, what are the annual average and median lengths of service of nurses who are successful in their applications for permanent resident status respectively.
The data requested is not readily available as the existing employment data among public healthcare institutions does not track the specific movement of permanent resident nurses who have switched employers but remained in the public healthcare sector. Based on anecdotal feedback, nurses who have obtained permanent resident status are likely to stay in service longer.
