Abstract

This exploratory study examined the relationship between action-oriented hope and progression on a pathway to licensure (forward movement) for internationally educated health professionals in Canada. The Hope-Centered Career Inventory and a series of hope-based interventions were used with participants (N = 19) who were all working in an underemployed capacity in a health region. Outcomes were tracked using a mixed-methods approach. Helping and hindering factors for licensure (as experienced by participants) were also discussed. Results showed that participants made a significant improvement with regard to the hope-centered career competencies after the interventions.
