Rn4cast study

RN4CAST study

  • Framework 7 European study, 12 countries 2009-2011

  • Ireland: 30 large acute general hospitals, 112 wards

    • Nurses completed a survey about their organisational working conditions, their own characteristics

      • General medical or surgical or mixed med/surg wards

    • Organisational profile data were collected for each hospital

    • Patient survey and discharge data were also collected

  • Question: Do these data help to explain the patterns of recruitment and retention of overseas qualified nurses in Irish general hospitals?

    • What is the extent and distribution?

    • What organisational factors are associated with high levels?


Nurse survey data

Nurse survey data

  • 1,406 responses, medical and surgical wards, 57% response rate

  • Asked if received basic nurse education in Ireland or not; if not, which country

    • Overall almost 40% qualified outside Ireland (n=536)

      • Just over half of whom qualified in the UK (n=274)

      • India (n=111) and the Philippines (n=92) – approx one fifth each

    • We did not ask about nationality

  • Other partners: % all overseas-qualified nurses:

    • Switzerland (22.1%) and England (16.7%), Norway (5.5%), Germany (5.1%), Greece (5.1%), Belgium (3.1%), Netherlands (2.4%), Sweden (2.3%), Spain (1.3%), Finland (0.9%), Poland (0%)

      • England: Philippines (31.0%, n=153) and India (22.7%, n=117) sub-Saharan Africa (15.9%, n=78) of overseas

Organisational profile data

Organisational profile data

  • Numbers of nurses…

    • who qualified in another country ; with a non-EU qualification; who are not EU citizens

    • total number of registered nurses

  • Proportion of nurses with non-EU qualification

    • Could be calculated for only 12/30 hospitals (range 1-50%)


Non eu qualified nurses as all organisational and nurse data

Non-EU qualified nurses as % all: Organisational and nurse data


Hospitals with 30 non eu qualified nurses

Hospitals with 30%+ non-EU qualified nurses

Using nurse survey data as available for all (though subject to response rate))


Discussion

Discussion

  • Lack of hospital-reported data- not known or not available (‘work-to-rule’)

  • To some extent nurse-reported data provide baseline (only for medical and surgical wards, based on respondents only) , suggest extent and distribution

    • Not possible to clearly identify ward or hospital factors associated with distribution pattern

  • Cross-sectional data collected in 2009/10 cannot capture the dynamics of recruitment and retention

    • Current nurse-reported data limited to indicate ‘push’ away/ ‘anti-Magnet’ (of domestically trained nurses);

    • is it possible to identify stable/enduring organisational factors?
