Education for Employment (E4E) program by Saudi German Hospital paves the way for hundreds of Saudi female students to begin rewarding careers in the nursing sector

24 March 2019, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia:   A new initiative sponsored by Saudi German Hospitals Group (SGH Group), in collaboration with Batterjee Medical College (BMC), is set to offer hundreds of Saudi students’ prosperous opportunities in the healthcare sector.

The Education for Employment program (E4E), which started in 2018, has sponsored 100 Saudi high school graduates, predominantly females, to study nursing at Batterjee Medical College. In line with Vision 2030, this initiative aims to increase the attractiveness of nursing as a preferred career path and encourage more Saudi nationals into the healthcare sector.

In collaboration with SGH Group’s Academic Affairs Department, students develop their competencies and skills to perform professional nursing duties and responsibilities in the future. SGH Group provides full financial support and covers all tuition fees, monthly allowances and insurance for students involved.  After three years of training, successful graduates of the program are offered employment at Saudi German Hospital branches.

Speaking about the initiative, Dr Khalid Batterjee, Vice President of SGH Group, said, “In the current healthcare climate, we are seeing a shortage of nurses in Saudi Arabia. The Education for Employment (E4E) initiative sets to change this through offering high school students the opportunity to find a rewarding career in nursing.  We truly believe nursing is one of the most important jobs when it comes to healthcare. The E4E program is an innovative program in terms of the curriculum. From the first year, the students involved will be out of the classroom and in the hospital shadowing our current doctors and nurses, so they can learn on the job.”

Dr Khalid Batterjee also commented that, although building skills and expertise is essential, there is a big focus on soft skills and attitude throughout the program. 

“To us, it is not just about skills and expertise. We want to ensure we are fostering the right attitude for our employees to ensure the best patient experience for all patients. To pass the program, there is a big focus on our students being collaborative, self-confident, passionate, professional, excellent communicators and, most importantly, caring and warm individuals whom put the patient first,” Dr Khalid Batterjee concludes.
