Formatted Abstract/Summary
Nurses constitute the majority of New Zealand’s regulated health professionals. Both in New Zealand and overseas, workforce shortages and high nursing turnover have negatively impacted on the health and disability sector. Apart from surveys undertaken at point of registration, no longitudinal study of New Zealand’s newly graduated registered nurses has been undertaken. In response, an international longitudinal cohort study of newly registered nurses exploring workforce participation and future study intentions has been established. This study will include recent graduates from Massey University, The University of Auckland and AUT University, and is a collaborative study with The University of Queensland, Montreal University and The National University of Singapore.

This paper provides an overview of this longitudinal study showcasing its innovative web‐based design. Graduates who have gained registration will be invited to go on‐line and log in to the dedicated e‐cohort portal and complete an annual on‐line survey. At a time of serious concerns about the global nursing shortage, it is anticipated the findings will track workforce patterns and trends which will provide much needed evidence to better understand the nursing workforce and contribute to future workforce policy and planning.
