“Conditions of most of the public hospitals in Dhaka and elsewhere in the country are far from satisfactory.” http://www.thedailystar.net/newDesign/news-details.php?nid=173902 Dhaka’s Daily Star often campaigns for improved public services. Higher public expectations are also essential to raise the status of nursing as a profession in Bangladesh. If patients and their relatives demand improved care, hospitals will have to hire well-educated nurses. With more opportunities, good nurses will be more mobile and can negotiate better pay and working conditions. This will in turn increase demand for better nurse education and stronger students will apply.
