More nurses being hired in P.E.I.

Health P.E.I. is recruiting for about 80 permanent and temporary nursing position vacancies.

The province is hiring more nurses under a new incentive program, increasing the number of nurse practitioners and providing a new program to help internationally educated nurses to practice in P.E.I.

Since January, 12 new registered nurse graduates were hired for permanent, full-time positions under the government’s new nursing recruitment program. Another 40 or more graduates will be offered positions under the program this spring.

The government is also investing about $300,000 to hire five new full-time nurse practitioners. Four will support large family practices in the Queens County region, and one will support the provincial gastroenterology service to follow-up and monitor patients.

In addition, the province has launched a new RN Bridging Program for Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs)to support registered nurses who were educated outside of Canada to get the training they require to practise nursing in P.E.I.
