Study: International nurses make for more stable, educated workforce

Hospitals that recruit and employ foreign-educated nurses cultivate on average more stable and educated workforces, according to a major employment study by researchers at New York University.

The study, published in the journal Nursing Economic$, found that units with higher percentages of international nurses had higher levels of education and lower levels of staff turnover, as international nurses are more likely to have earned a baccalaureate degree and more likely to stay in their job longer than their American-born colleagues.
