About the Author

Mireille Kingma is a consultant on nursing and health policy for the International Council of Nurses, which is based in Geneva, Switzerland.


"Should be required reading in several sectors-for all nurses considering migration, and also nursing leaders, CEOs, human resources professionals and policy makers across government portfolios. This book has the potential to influence policy and provide direction for a long-term strategic plan for nursing human resources."-Margaret Keatings, RN, MHSc, Nursing Leadership, Vol. 19, No. 2 (2006) "Nurses on the Move is an informative, comprehensive discussion of international nurse migration providing a synthesis of numerous reports and publications, poignant interviews with nurse migrants, and analysis of nurse migration in the larger context of the global workforce. Everything related to international nurse migration can be found in this highly readable volume of interest to nurses, policy makers, and the public."-Linda H. Aiken, Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research, University of Pennsylvania "This book analyzes a major policy issue-the migration of nurses around the globe. It considers the way migration has become big business and also highlights the personal experiences of nurses themselves. In so doing, Nurses on the Move gives us a better understanding of this important trend that has an impact on the contemporary health care workforce."-James Buchan, Queen Margaret University College, Edinburgh "Nurses on the Move reveals the new shape of globalization. Skilled, overwhelmingly female nurses are moving in the hundreds of thousands around the globe. Mireille Kingma's exciting book puts a human face on the new worldwide labor market for nurses. Beyond uncovering the complicated economic and social forces that push nurses into migration from poor countries, Kingma explores how labor might transform the 'brain drain' in nursing into a 'brain gain' that benefits nurses, patients, and society as a whole. Anyone interested in health care, global labor, or in organizing health care workers needs to read this book."-Elaine Bernard, Harvard Law School "Mireille Kingma's comprehensive review and analysis of nurse migration will be useful for everyone from students to health care professionals and managers to policy makers interested in globalization and the impact of migration on the well-being of individuals and communities. Managing the migration flow of nurses is essential to the success of the UN's Millennium Development Goals."-Danielle Grondin, MD, FRCPC, International Organization for Migration
