[LETTERS TO THE EDITOR]First factories, now nursesAs seen in the article “U.S. nursing exam to be offered here” (June 3), 1,444 Korean nurses applied to take the U.S nursing exam last year, and ranked second only to Americans in the rate at which they passed. Because of this, Korean nurses will be able to take the exam here.
This will lead to an increase in successful Korean applicants, which means more highly skilled nurses will leave Korea. So Korea will lose skilled workers, in addition to the factories and other things that are moving out. What next, the Blue House? Korea should try to stop all these important people from moving out.
