Title Nurse migration from the EU: What are the key challenges?

The nursing workforce is facing significant change; it is aging 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 challenging. Traditionally popular solutions that involve recruiting nurses from the international marketplace can clearly help but they bring their own human resources (HR) management challenges [1]. In this Policy+ we focus on nurse migration into the UK from other European Union (EU) countries. The evidence was collected as part of the PROMeTHEUS study [2]. It is one of the first using a survey and interviews to explore the HR management challenges and the factors influencing decision-making at different stages specifically of the EU migration process of health professionals.
