Kate Golebiowska presents ‘Employment of overseas-qualified nurses and midwives in the Northern Territory’, on Friday 15 June from 12pm.
Launched in June 2007 and planned to conclude in March 2008, this project looks at employment of overseas-qualified nurses and midwives in the Northern Territory. Kate’s presentation discusses its scope, methodology and expected outcomes.
Employment of overseas-qualified nurses and midwives may help to stabilise the Territory nursing workforce and service delivery. These individuals immigrate on visas typically imposing a temporary fixed-term employment and residence period, but once they become eligible to obtain employment elsewhere in Australia, they may move away from the Territory altogether.
The study aims to:
- Understand what attracts these nurses and midwives to the Territory
- Understand what influences their decision to stay or leave
- Explore their employment experiences as international migrants
- Learn about their performance from their managers.
