Accenture, India Partner to Build Nurse Training Center to Fill Overseas Vacancies

Accenture and India’s state government of Kochi is partnering to start an academy to train nurses for international deployment, Decan Chronicle reports.

The program, to start at Kochi’s Technocity academy, will create and use a five-acre facility for improved language and soft skills for the nursing students.

Labor minister Shibu Baby John said there is a “huge demand for nurses in Latin America and language is one stumbling block and the opening of such a facility will open doors for nurses from here.”

Under the partnership, Accenture will provide the training and resources for the facility.

The company estimates the new complex will help train 4,500 nurses per year.

Baby John thought of shipping nurses overseas after Accenture representatives explained the unmet requirement for nurses in Spain, a country he had just visited.
