This research note synthesizes sociology of work and organization studies literatures, to outline a research agenda examining the identity transition of nurses. Academic studies suggest that nurses face a greater challenge to enact, and are more likely to be marginalized within, hybrid manager roles. Further research is encouraged that has a comparative professional dimension, focused upon social position and power and which takes account of the gendered nature of policy reform and professions.
