Efforts to expand access to nursing care and remedy the global nursing shortages are hampered when nurses are unemployed or underemployed. This monograph seeks to fill the gap in understanding on this issue, including nurses who are currently inactive but who might return to nursing work given favorable circumstances. The document also includes case studies from Kenya, Uganda, Philippines and Ireland.
