The shortage of qualified nurses is a problem of growing concern in many countries. Recruitment of internationally trained nurses has been used to address this shortage, but successful integration in the workplace is complex and resource intensive. For effective recruitment and retention, it is important to identify why nurses migrate and if their expectations are met to ensure their successful integration and promote a satisfying work climate for the entire nursing team. The aim of this study was to examine the perceptions of safety culture, work-life-balance, burnout and job demand of internationally trained nurses and associated host nurses in German hospitals.

The role of doctoral‐educated nurses in the clinical setting: Findings from a scoping review.
Dobrowolska, B., Chruściel, P., Markiewicz, R. and Palese, A. (2021),
J Clin Nurs. https://doi.org/10.1111/jocn.15810
Aims and objectives
To map and summarise published studies on the career opportunities and roles of doctoral‐educated (PhD and DNP) nurses in the clinical setting; to collate actions as proposed in the literature to promote career opportunities and roles for PhD and DNP nurses in the clinical setting.
To improve healthcare outcomes and strengthen leadership in nursing practice, there is the need to place nurses with a doctorate in clinical settings. However, available evidence has never been summarised to map the state of the science in this field.
The impact of intersectionality on nursing leadership, empowerment and culture: A case study exploring nurses and managers’ perceptions in an acute care hospital in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Aspinall, C., Jacobs, S. and Frey, R. (2021),
J Clin Nurs. https://doi.org/10.1111/jocn.15745
This study determines whether the culture within an acute care hospital empowers ‘all’ nurses to be leaders by exploring intersectionality and nursing leadership in the context of the social environment.
Nurses practice leadership in their day‐to‐day activities as clinical leaders alongside traditional roles of management and leadership. However, some nurses do not acknowledge nursing work as leadership activity, nor is it seen so by others where hierarchical leadership approaches remain prevalent. Social constructs of gender and race are barriers to accessing formal leadership positions for some, while dominant power structures such as class diminish the value of bedside nursing work. Unexplored is the impact of the intersection of these and other social identities on nurses being leaders
