The international migration of nurses is a global phenomenon with severe repercussions for countries like Malawi, which face a human resources for health crisis. This book traces the biographies and future perspectives of young Malawian nurses with a university degree, uncovering the biographic importance and meanings of intentions and images of migration in the new generation of nurses. It contributes often-neglected biographical insights on nurse migration from the Global South that can inform research and policy development on the migration of nurses from Malawi and beyond.
