Global Summit on Nurse Faculty Migration

STTI and the International Council of Nurses (ICN) convened an international summit in June, 2010  to explore contributing factors to the global nurse faculty migration. This meeting, supported by The Elsevier Foundation, was the first time an interdisciplinary group of leaders proactively addressed the critical need for qualified nursing faculty globally.

Twenty-one experts from 12 countries convened near Geneva, Switzerland, in late June to explore current patterns, types and causal and contributing factors of global nurse faculty migration, a phenomenon where nursing faculty leave their country of origin to work elsewhere. Learn more
