Chinese Americans Go From Wall Street to Nursing

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Jul 30, 2009

NEW YORK -- Young Chinese Americans are moving from Wall Street to jobs in health care, reports the Sing Tao Daily. As the unemployment rate increases, the demand for nurses in New York City remains strong as 17 percent of its 63,000 nurses are about to retire. Kar Fu Wong, one of the participants in the program at Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing, told the Sing tao Daily that he decided to leave the unstable world of finance after the economic meltdown and enter nursing, which he sees as a more fulfilling career. Another participant, Jia Ling Lin, who majored in finance and management, said she believes nursing is a more respectable job. The program will train 500 nurses in the next five years.
