This paper examines available information on the flows of qualified nurses to and from the United Kingdom, and reports on the results of a questionnaire survey of U.K.-based nurses who had worked abroad.
The data examined reveals an upward trend in both « inflow » and « outflow » of nurses in the period 198491, with indications of a net outflow.
The survey results indicated that Australia was the most common destination; most nurses working abroad had moved to the English-speaking countries of North America and Australasia.
Barriers and incentives to international mobility of nurses are discussed, and likely future trends in mobility are examined.
