About the Project

MPhil/PhD Scholarship

Greenwich Maritime Campus

The current global pandemic has shed a fresh light on the importance and challenges for healthcare systems and professional staff who work within them. Nurses comprise the largest sector of the health care workforce with this workforce facing key ongoing challenges, including those related to training, recruitment and retention, staff turnover, staff shortages, work intensification and stress, the recruitment and registration/ validation of overseas nurses, discrimination and bullying (The Health Foundation, The King's Fund and the Nuffield Trust, 2018). These problems are not confined to the UK nursing workforce and are common across many countries.

We are seeking a fully-funded PhD student (3 years) to develop and conduct a program of research related to one of current challenges facing the nursing workforce. The project may include cross -national comparisons.
