THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Nothing the nursing sector was the most exploited in the country and nurses were not getting their due wages and recognition,  Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said his government gave much importance to the welfare and security of nurses.

One of the crises faced by students who pass out from nursing colleges is they cannot find better placement after completing studies, he said on the International Nurses Day. As such the students who have taken education loans are unable to repay the loans that they have taken, he said.
Pinarayi said the `900 crore education scheme launched by the government to help financially backward students would help the nursing students who have taken loans.
He said the government has created more posts for nurses and many more are on the cards.
