Abstract

Nurses in North America have a distinguished history of involvement in immigrant health due to the immigrant character of this region. The Western Hemisphere is a region composed of recent migrants from nearly every corner of the globe. Complicated economic, environmental, and social dynamics contribute to these various migration patterns and commensurate health-related issues—physical, psychological, and spiritual. Nurses attuned to health issues of newer immigrants' lives use newfound knowledge to shape the care they provide, and political advocacy. This article updates our understandings of migration, utilizing critical perspectives to analyze contemporary dynamics of migration and respective health issues.
