This contributes to the need for these countries to recruit from developing countries," says Linda H. Aiken, professor and director of the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy at the University of Pennsylvania. "This exodus of nurses from developing countries impacts the ability of these countries to develop sustainable health care systems, provide appropriate care, and manage disease."
