The focus on international nurse recruitment has intensified, due to challenges intraining, recruiting and retaining domestic nurses. Internationally recruited nurses face challengesdue to cultural differences between nursing training programmes in the UK and abroad, includingdifferent approaches to carrying out personal care and care planning processes. There is an unmetneed to effectively support non-UK trained nurses to successfully integrate into work and widersociety, with resulting impacts on patient care quality and safety and the supervision/assessment ofnursing students. Providing supportive resources and guidance to international nurses can helpreduce cultural dissonance in providing safe and appropriate student learning environments.The mixed methods study design will develop a rich understanding of the behaviours of non-UKregistered nurses:Phase 1: A systematic literature review exploring to what extent the backgrounds of internationallyrecruited nurses’ impact on the quality and safety of patient care, and the learning environment asexperienced by students and newly qualified nurses.Phase 2: Vignettes, relating to common situations registered nurses encounter in clinical practice,will be developed. These will relate to topics around care delivery and supporting student nurses inclinical practice through supervisory and assessor roles. Non-UK trained and UK trained nurseparticipants will be asked how they would respond.Phase 3: Interviews carried out with non-UK trained and UK trained registered nurses, nursemanagers, multidisciplinary team members, NHS recruiting managers and Chief Nurses - exploringphase 1 &2 findings.For informal inquiries about the project/application process contact Dr Clair Merrimancmerriman@brookes.ac.uk or Dr Catherine Henshall email@example.comHow to apply: Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application form.
