Nursing is a global profession and the mobility of nurses is nothing new. What is new is the increasing large-scale, targeted, international recruitment by developed countries to address domestic shortages. EFN supports free movement of nurses in Europe and the rights of individuals to make free choices, but it is concerned about the unethical practices of a minority of recruitment agencies and the possible exploitation of some recruited nurses.
