Abstract There is a global shortage of nursing professionals. It is particularly tight for remote places like the Northern Territory, Australia. This report looks at the demographic profile of the Territoryʼs nurses and midwives, how that has changed in the last few decades and explores prospects for the future. The report also explores why nursing professionals come to the Northern Territory, why they stay and why some leave. The drivers of international migration are investigated as well as some of the costs of nursing turnover to the Territory economy. Twenty recommendations are made to improve retention rates.
