Nurses’ Rep: Nursing Shortage Must be Solved


Nurses’ Union head Ilana Cohen spoke to IDF Radio (Galei Tzahal) on Wednesday about the ongoing nurses strike. “I understand that there are budget cuts, but people need to understand: the nurses’ problem must be solved,” she said.

Nurses say that without higher salaries and a government resolution making nursing a national priority profession, Israel will face a serious shortage of nurses.

Speaking of a compromise deal offered by the Treasury, she said, “It would be better to leave things as they are. We absolutely will not agree to take crumbs.”
