Abstract

Employing internationally educated nurses (IENs) to address the nursing workforce shortage is common in many countries, including the United States. This study examined the relationship between unit utilization of IENs and collaboration in U.S. hospitals. Results indicated more IENs on a unit did not significantly affect the collaboration among nurses and between nurses and physicians. The presence of IENs significantly influenced unit nursing characteristics, such as education attainment and unit tenure.
