Supporting internationally qualified nurses – the learnings in a small private hospital


This presentation will share the learnings of one private hospital as it prepared to support a cohort of Internationally Qualified Nurses (IQN) as they gained employment.

The supporting literature and strategies for ongoing support will be discussed alongside the challenges that were encountered.

It is hoped that discussion of the adjustments required by our existing staff alongside their new IQN colleagues, will prove useful to Nurses in Education and in Practice.

Key words: supporting; internationally qualified nurses; small hospital.
