  • Description
    [Excerpt from author] This report focuses primarily on the policy implications of the international migration of nurses, and highlights recent trends. International recruitment and migration of nurses has been a growing feature of the global health agenda since the late 1990s. Nurses have always taken the opportunity to move across national borders in pursuit of new opportunities and better career prospects, but in the last few years nurse migration appears to have grown significantly, with the potential to undermine attempts to achieve health system improvement in some developing countries.
