[Research Presentation] Global migration is a reality of the twenty-first century. Nurses crossing international borders will continue to increase as the demand for nurses worldwide continues to grow. Yet practicing across borders challenges not only the migrating nurse but also the nurseÆs employer and the staff in the host institution. Issues such as cultural competence, assertiveness, language proficiency, skills assessment and use of technology often create stumbling blocks to a successful transition. In addition, the nurse and the employer often have differing expectations of the transition and a different concept of the type of environment that will support safe patient care.áThis presentation will describe the challenges of practicing across borders as identified by migrating nurses, their employers and their colleagues. It will discuss the characteristics of a successful transition program that not only meets the needs of the nurse and the employer but also ensures the safe delivery of patient care.
