Chandigarh, Dec 19 (UNI) Keeping in view the great demand for Indian nurses abroad, the Haryana Overseas Placement Bureau has signed an MOU with the Modi Healthcare Placement (I) Pvt Ltd to train nurses and send them abroad.

For providing training to the nurses, Mr Chaudhary announced the setting up of a training centre in Panchkula. Three more such centres would be set up later at Faridabad, Rohtak, Hisar or Yamunanagar.
The Modi EduCare would also provide training in General English, IELTS and computers. For the training the Modi EduCare would charge a fee of around Rs 90,000 over a period of one year.
The Modi Healthcare Placement (I) Pvt Ltd would help the applicants in getting the licence as a Registered Nurse from the US and would place them in the Banner Health System-the largest Not for Profit-Hospital group in the US, Modi EduCare CEO Charu Modi Bhartia said.
''If the applicant is married, the spouse would also get the work permit as per his/her qualifications. For two children of the applicant, the education up to High School shall be provided free of cost in the US,'' she said.
For working in the US, she said the applicant would get 25 to 45 dollar per hour, depending upon the place of employment, for the first 40 hours in a week. For the next 20 hours the applicant would get 50 per cent extra as overtime.
As soon as the applicant joins the job, he or she would get 5000 dollars to settle there. Also the fee paid by the applicant in India for his/her training would be reimbursed in full. For these benefits, the applicant should have done atleast the diploma in GNM and should have at least two years of experience in a hospital of at least 50 beds, Ms Bhartia added.
