  • Description
    "Health care services represent one of the most rapidly growing sectors in the world economy. Today's health sector labor market and workforce are international, fast becoming global. Migration on a massive scale offers countless business opportunities, not only for the private sector but also for the public sector. The migration pathway is often filled with a significant number of obligatory stops. Many people and circumstances along the way will either facilitate or prevent progress. There will be a need for certain services and a series of goods to complete the migration. These will be provided by a wide range of agencies, institutions, entrepreneurs, regulatory bodies, and businesses. This article looks at the current global workforce and explores the commercialization or the business of nurse migration and its impact." (excerpt from abstract)
