Career Paths of Nursing Professionals
A Study of Employment MobilityeBook - 1998
A "snapshot" of key labour force and market issues in the nursing field, the study provides important baseline data from which the impact of present and future public policy trends and changes can be monitored, reviewed, and researched. The dimensions studied here include recent demographic shifts, the various forms of employment mobility, levels of voluntarism, career interruption, and nurses' reasons for leaving the field. Each line of inquiry raises pressing questions about the professional lives of those who work most directly and dynamically with patients but whose careers are being altered, perhaps detrimentally, by reorganization in the Canadian health care system. This book will be of great interest to nursing practitioners, educators and administrators, allied practitioners and policy makers, and social scientists with an interest in the labour market, work, occupations, and professions.
