Many nurses working here in Norway have migrated from other parts of the world. Why do they move, and what do they experience when they begin working life in a new context? In the project Migration for welfare (WELLMIG), researchers looked specifically at nurse migration in Norway, from three countries – Sweden, Poland and the Philippines. The differences and similarities in their experiences are illuminating. Marta Bivand Erdal and Lubomiła Korzeniewska talk on this episode about "deskilling" and what motivates nurse migrants.
