'at the king fahad medical city (kfmc) we have embarked upon a 'saudization' program to motivate more nationals to join our nursing team. under the program we send qualified undergraduates abroad to obtain an international bachelor's degree in nursing. moreover saudi nurses with diplomas are being encouraged to join international bridging programs or to study in one of the kingdom's universities. while kfmc is aware that expatriate expertise is vital to run nursing faculties within the hospital our strategy is to have a 30 percent national work force by 2020" wilshaw said.
