The research project is about the fact that the Greenlandic population needs more permanent resident nurses who have knowledge of the dual language situation and culture in Greenland - especially if the population's health status is to be maintained or improved.

At present, not enough nurses graduate. The intake of students is limited by the fact that only 14 internships with qualified supervision can be offered. In addition, only 7 to 8 of the students have completed their training in recent years.

The aim of the project is therefore to explore the possibility of establishing more internships and developing activities to promote retention and well-being among students and new graduates.

The methodology and activities of the project will be continuously developed in a collaborative effort between researchers, educators, nursing students, recent graduates - and experienced nurses.
