This knowledge synthesis report examines how migrant transition programs (status conversion from temporary to permanent) influence the nursing sector in Canada. Immigrant transition programs have significant relevance for nursing because they add complexity to; labour force planning in the health sector, ethical recruitment protocols for international health care, processes of migrant workforce integration, and the assessment of structural processes that shape and reproduce migration as a form of gendered state developmentalist policy in some sending regions.
