The Real "Cost" of Study in Australia and the Ramifications for China, Australia, and the Chinese Nursing Students: What Do These Three Players Want? A Narrative Review
Wang, Carol Chunfeng; Whitehead, Lisa; Bayes, Sara
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v15 n5 p590-606 2017
Australia attracts international nursing students from China to maintain its economic advantage and to alleviate the projected nursing shortage; conversely, China needs its best and brightest citizens who have trained abroad in nursing to return to cope with current challenges within its healthcare system and nursing education. This paper explores whether China can lure its foreign-trained nurses home to achieve its goals; whether China or Australia will win the nursing talent war; and do Chinese nursing students want to remain abroad or return home. The insight gained can support the development of successful human capital investment for all parties involved.
