Globalization of workforce market was an inevitable consequence of the rapid and worldwide interconnection of economies and societies. Highly skilled professionals from numerous areas got the opportunity to build their careers outside their native countries. Such state of things is common for almost any area of human activities including healthcare provision.

Modern healthcare professionals such as physicians and highly qualified nurses are a valuable asset for any health care provider. It is clear that such employees usually migrate to the countries with higher compensation and work conditions. Therefore, certain trends exist in this area due to the economic, social, political, or other issues in the world. Healthcare managers must be aware of the trends in international migration of physicians and nurses due to the number of reasons (, 2003).

The first and the most important reason to follow the trend is the need in information regarding the source of the labor force. It is utterly important to understand the level of nurses and physicians training that a particular country or region is able to provide. Then, the second reason is the need in qualified specialized staff such as nurses, for example. Richer countries are able to compensate shortages in qualified nurses rather quickly so it is necessary to be aware of the current situation on the market to foresee the strategic steps and make them if necessary (Stilwell et al., 2003).

Finally, the third reason is not that obvious however, still important: extensive migration of workforce from one region could potentially create severe problems in this area in the long run (Stilwell et al., 2003;, 2003). Therefore, the level of qualification drops rather substantially over time so this region or country should not the used as the employment source anymore. The developing countries provide the developed countries with personnel so this trend should be followed very attentively.
