Waiting: Migrant Nurses in Norway

Video abstract by Taylor Vaughn, Marie Louise Seeberg, and Aslaug Gotehus for their article published in Time & Society. The article “Waiting: Migrant nurses in Norway” looks into the experiences of nurses from Sweden and the Philippines working in Norway. Despite the substantial structural differences shaping their migration experiences, we recognized that there were many similarities in the lives of the Philippine and Swedish nurses we interviewed. We wanted to highlight those similarities in this article and use “waiting” as a lens to do so.
