In 1999, the Bologna declaration was established to increase
standardisation of higher education including nursing education across Europe. This
process encourages improved workforce mobility within the European Union as
qualifications become increasingly recognised across a number of European countries.
This article identifies current intelligence around a specific discipline in nursing:
regarding the nurse educator, what is written and known about career pathways, the
underlying influences within nurse training and further opportunities for study at the
higher academic levels. A study of the literature across European countries together
with a focus group workshop of nurse educators held in Udine, Italy, in November
2007 has enabled the authors to review the position and status of nurse educators
across a number of European countries and identify factors affecting nurse educator
mobility. Common themes and shared concerns have been identified as has
recommendations for future research.
