Nursing Strategy to meet the demand for nurses in New Brunswick released

nurses in New Brunswick released

The Nursing Resource Strategy of New Brunswick has proposed recruiting internationally trained nurses to address the increasing demand for nurses in the healthcare system of the province. The recruitment of internationally educated nurses (IENs) is one of four so-called “action items” proposed in the Nursing Resource Strategy to meet the increasing demand for nurses in health services and long-term care among New Brunswickers.
The document has pointed out that the province’s population is aging faster than any other region in Canada and this is a “critical demographic situation.” It should also be noted that New Brunswick has one of the oldest populations in Canada.
The report further says that 41 per cent of registered nurses (RNs) in New Brunswick are 50 years of age or older. The bachelor of Nursing programs in the province are witnessing a decline in enrolment along with an attrition rate of 30 per cent for nursing students. New Brunswick’s Ministry of Health predicts that the healthcare sector of the province will have a shortage of at least 130 registered nurses (RNs) each year over the next 10 years. It is also expected that during this period, around 4,376 RN vacancies will be created. All these factors indicate that the demand for nurses in New Brunswick will increase further in the near future.
In order to solve the shortage of nurses in the province, New Brunswick is planning to recruit Internationally Educated Nurses from countries where Nursing education programs have similar nursing professional standards, competencies, and credentials to New Brunswick. This will help the province to select immigrant nurses who can meet the registration requirements of the province.
The government has also recommended an examination to identify any barriers, areas for improvement or efficiencies for IENs and to improve the application process. Another recommendation in the Nursing Resource Strategy is establishing a program to help IENs find work in the healthcare sector of the province while their applications for registration are being processed. It will allow for a positive integration of Internationally Educated Nurses into the province.
Among the Strategy’s other action items are offering permanent employment (full-time and part-time) to New Brunswick graduates and RNs recruited from other provinces or countries and a signing bonus in exchange for a three-year commitment to serve in rural areas of New Brunswick.
New Brunswick and other provinces in Canada have huge demand for trained professionals including nurses. You can successfully migrate to Canada if you have work experience in an occupation that is in huge demand in Canada.
