  • Description
    [Excerpt from authors]This paper focuses on nurses who have migrated and are registered/licensed/authorised to practice, post-adaptation/orientation, and are working as a nurse in a given country. The term international nurse is used for nurses who have been educated abroad and have either been recruited or have chosen to migrate. This paper aims to provide an overview of the influences of international policies and agreements, the social and personal benefits and costs of migration for international nurses based on their experiences, and to outline a possible framework to develop positive practice environments to support long-term integration and the retention of this valuable resource.
