Though I didn't look at the nursing situation in particular, I wrote a paper on medical migration from low and middle-income countries and addressed steps to improving motivation and retention of health professionals.

The paper is a systematic review. Here's the link:

  • The nursing workforce in sub-Saharan Africa. (download, 319.2┬áKB)

    Summary: This paper examines various aspects of the nursing and midwifery workforce in Africa, looking at education and supply systems; recruitment, retention and motivation and career systems. It further investigates attrition from migration and HIV/AIDS, as well as other factors and makes some recommendations on how to move forward
    using examples of experiences from countries.
