Efforts of the private recruitment agencies to explore new labor markets, especially in Europe, have paid off with the entry of Filipino nurses into Austria, a landlocked country surrounded by Germany and other European countries.

According to Ma. Lourdes Capua, president and general manager of LRC Manpower Services, 28 Filipino men and women nurses have arrived in Burgenland Austria, one of the nine federations comprising the country of Austria.


This is the very first deployment of Filipino nurses to Austria as confirmed by the Austrian Embassy in Manila.


The nurses will do auxiliary work while studying German language courses which is the national dialect in Austria. They will receive EU1,200 or P73,120 per month during the period of their German Language studies.


After six to seven months, the pay will be adjusted to EU2,600 or P156,000 upon obtaining a Language Certification and passing the Austrian Nursing Board Exams.


Full board and accommodation will be shouldered by the hospital and the contract is for two years with 15 days annual leave each year.


All expenses for the deployment of the Filipino nurses were covered by the employer except fees for passports and medical exams of applicants.
