Abstract:This study empirically examined the pull and push factors that influence the recruitment and retention of physicians and nurses in 14 rural hospitals in Lagos State of Nigeria from 1980-2006.The descriptive statistics indicated that relatively more nurses were recruited and retained than physicians in these rural hospitals. Consistently, political risk and the technology variable significantly explained the recruitment and retention of both physicians and nurses in the rural hospitals studied in Lagos State, Nigeria. While the exchange rate risk was exclusively significant in the recruitment and retention of physicians, per capita income and patients-to-nurse ratio were also exclusively significant in the recruitment and retention of nurses in the 14 rural hospitals. The most striking result in this study is the significant impact of medical technology in the recruitment and retention of physicians and nurses in the rural hospitals of Lagos State of Nigeria. These results suggest that healthcare CEOs in the rural hospitals may be able to address the shortages of physicians and nurses by tackling them case by case via exchange rate risk and medical technology for physicians and salaries, work-loads, and medical technologies for nurses.
