Overseas mobility of U.K. based nurses

Overseas mobility of U.K. based nurses

International Journal of Nursing Studies 34(1): 54-62

This paper examines trends in international mobility of U.K. nurses. Inflow and outflow of qualified nurses from the U.K. are assessed, and source and destination countries identified. The reasons for mobility are also examined. The paper reveals that mobility of nurses to and from the U.K. has declined in the 1990s, after having increased markedly in the late 1980s. Mobility to and from North America and Australasia has reduced significantly, as a result of organisational change and reduced career opportunities, whilst inflow and outflow to and from other European countries has remained more static, but at a lower level.
