Why is it important?

Our research delves into the transformative influence of international rules on nurse migration in Indonesia. What sets this study apart is its timely analysis of how these global rules are reshaping national policies and significantly increasing nurse migration. The unique aspect lies in our examination of the challenges faced, including the need for enhanced coordination and data, to provide a comprehensive view. This work holds the potential to guide policymakers and stakeholders, making it essential reading for anyone interested in the evolving landscape of nurse migration in Indonesia and beyond.


This publication highlights how international guidelines, particularly the Global Code of Practice, are influencing nurse migration policies in Indonesia. It emphasizes their role in shaping national strategies for healthcare workers. While these guidelines have brought positive changes, there are still important issues to address, such as the need for more comprehensive regulations and improved data systems. Overall, this study is a valuable resource for policymakers and researchers interested in healthcare workforce migration.
