Nurse migration while not a new phenomenon, has surged as nursing shortages grow around the world. Dr. Barbara Sheer, professor emeritus at the University of Delaware School of Nursing, talks about the push-and-pull forces on the nursing workforce worldwide as well as the impact of migration. Surprisingly, migration is not just occurring from underdeveloped to developed countries. Learn more about the critical issues, including ethical recruiting, finding ways to evaluate vast and varying levels of nurse education, and integration of migrating nurses to a new culture.
