National Nursing Research Unit (NNRU) -
The nursing workforce is facing significant change; it is ageing and there is more demand for part-time working. More of its traditional entrants are choosing alternative careers. Facing these recruitment and retention issues while simultaneously trying to improve productivity and the quality of care is proving to be a challenge. Traditionally popular solutions that involve recruiting nurses from the international marketplace can help but they bring their own human resources management challenges. This Policy+ focuses on nurse migration into the UK from other European Union countries.
