Moving to Action: Evidence-Based Retention and Recruitment Policy Initiatives for Nursing

January 1, 2013 | By |

Canada is facing a nursing shortage after the redeployment and reductions in nursing resources in the late 1990’s. Retention to the profession and recruitment into nursing has not been a major focus and as a result many Canadian nurses have migrated to the U.S. and other countries for full-time work. Nurses also migrate internally between provinces and territories within Canada. This research project consists of three independent studies, including the examination of the motivations for Canadian nurses to work in the U.S., the inter-provincial/territorial migration of nurses in Canada, and the information needed to develop a program to match repatriated nurses to available jobs in Canada.
