Job Market Perspectives

Job market perspectives for nurses in Indonesia is promising as there are many nursing job opportunities for them. The BSN-PN program in the Universitas Hasanuddin is the oldest and the best program in Eastern Indonesia and therefore, it is become the study destination for the potential nurses in the region. Although there are many nursing graduates from other institutions, our graduates are still requested by many health providers. Most of them working in the various work settings, as nurse practitioners and nurse managers in public and private hospitals, public health centres, and other health care services. In addition, they also can work as managers in Health Insurance Institutions (BPJS) and program managers in Health Department. Other work opportunity for our graduates is working as teaching assistants in public or private nursing schools. Besides working in Indonesia, our graduates are also highly demanded for working abroad such as in the USA, Japan, the Netherlands, Australia, and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The job demand for nursing graduates is high and is projected to increase within 10 years ahead.
