Abstract :

Prospects and problems of nursing is a burning issue in Bangladesh and currently a subject of discussion. A review article is compiled with various research papers and from the speeches of dignitaries. In Bangladesh, nurses and the nursing profession both are largely neglected. We must find out the root of every problem and solve the problem at the very root. The nurses in Bangladesh are facing a lot of problems including their status, dignity, work benefits, working environment, service guaranty and social stigma. Risk of nursing service is high and nurses have no defined work policies. The prospects of nurses are only seen in international arena. But, there are also alot of constraints in terms of immigration and recruitment of qualified nurses in Bangladesh. The health care sector is expanding worldwide day-by-day. The shortage of nurses are increasing in comparison to increasing number of patients and population. It is one of the major problems to establish quality patient care due to lack of qualified nurses. A new dimension is to be opened for the nurses in both public and private sector to uphold the position of nurses in Bangladesh.
