The UAE government’s Nafis programme, which aims to encourage and empower Emiratis to secure jobs in the private sector, is now pushing local talents to take up careers in the medical sector.
Several initiatives, including scholarships, will be introduced to support Emiratis to become nurses, a top official said.
“Our frontline healthcare workers have been at the forefront of the fight against Covid-19, aptly deemed heroes by the entire community,” said Ghannam Al Mazrouei, Secretary-General of the Emirati Talent Competitiveness Council.
“Under the directives of our leadership, Nafis will be launching a number of initiatives, including the National Healthcare Programme, which aims to qualify nationals in the field of nursing through paid scholarships,” Al Mazrouei said.
