Leadership Development Needs of Managers who Supervise Foreign Recruited Nurses
Abstract:
Leadership Development Needs of Managers who Supervise Foreign Recruited Nurses
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2007
Author:Sherman, Rose O., EdD, RN, CNAA
P.I. Institution Name:Florida Atlantic University
Title:Program Director, Nursing Leadership Institute
[Leadership session research presentation] The legal, ethical and human resource issues that surround the international recruitment of nurses have received widespread coverage in the media and nursing literature. Although organizations who do foreign recruitment invest significant resources, little has been written about the challenges in the transition of foreign nurses into healthcare practice environments outside their countries of origin. This issue will become more imperative in the future if Peter Buerhaus' recent prediction that up to 25% of the US nursing workforce may be recruited abroad by 2020 comes to fruition. The literature suggests that the successful transition of foreign nurses into the healthcare environment of another country requires supportive leadership but this does not always occur.  This presentation will discuss evidenced-based findings about the current experiences, best practices and leadership development needs of nurse leaders who work with foreign nurses.  A qualitative approach was used to collect data for the study that will be discussed. A convenience sample of ten nursing leaders from different geographic areas in the United States was telephone interviewed to obtain information for this project.  Recommendations will be made about the type of educational programming that leaders who receive foreign nurses in their work environments need to facilitate their successful transition into the healthcare environment.
