Abstract
The recruitment of internationally-educated nurses (IENs) is increasing in Canada, as a strategy to remedy nursing shortages. Effective recruitment and retention are needed, if this strategy is to be deemed a success. One of the criteria for successful retention is the availability and accessibility of career advancement and education opportunities. Little research exists on the opportunities for career advancement and education for IENs in Canada. This interpretive descriptive study was conducted to look at the perceptions of IENs regarding education and career advancement opportunities in Alberta, Canada. Eleven IENs were interviewed using semi-structured interviews. Eight themes were identified: Motherhood as a priority, communication challenges, learning a new culture, the process of skill recognition, perceptions of opportunity, personal responsibility for success, personal definition of advancement, and need for mentorship.
