Abstract [en]

Background: Globalization has increased the migration of internationally educated nurses’ (IENs) and International Medical Graduates (IMG) to high-income countries.

Objective: To highlight the challenges of interviewing internationally educated nurses and doctors in another language than their native language regarding their working experiences in the Swedish health and social care system.

Method: Semi-structured interviews with eleven IENs and eleven IMGs. Data were analyzed with qualitative content analysis.

Results: Interviews with non-Swedish trained nurses and doctors provide important information about their working experiences in the host country, even if their language skills in the host country’s language can be poor. However, the data had a less nuanced language, the same word could be used repeatedly, English words were sometimes used when not finding the Swedish words and some questions were difficult for the informants to understand and had to be omitted. Performing the interview, transcribing and analyzing them took more time compared to interviews with native speakers. The informants clearly stated that they wanted the interview to be in Swedish and not in for example English.
