  • Description
    "This report reviews the impact of pay increases on nurses' labour market indicators. It presents background data on trends in the numbers of nurses and the remuneration of nurses in OECD countries; summarises the limited evidence base on pay and labour market behaviour; reports on four case study countries where a significant pay raise was awarded to at least some categories of nurses in recent years in response to perceived labour market challenges - the United Kingdom (UK), New Zealand, Finland and the Czech Republic - using a variety of indicators to illustrate impact; and concludes with key points for policy makers."
