Abstract: This study of mobility among Northern Territory nurses and midwives (including employment of overseas-qualified nurses in the Northern Territory of Australia) has been undertaken in three parts. A team from the School for Social and Policy Research at Charles Darwin University has been responsible for interviewing nurses and midwives and using that to prepare a questionnaire that explores motivations for coming to the NT, staying, or leaving the NT workforce. The Health Gains Planning branch of the Department of Health and Families has been responsible for analysing statistical data on turnover rates and determining the economic costs of nurse and midwife turnover. The report itself is provided by Charles Darwin University for consideration by the Department of Health and Families who will respond to recommendations based on this and other complementary information.
