The Canadian province of New Brunswick will be conducting information sessions on immigration for nurses and their families. The sessions, which will be conducted in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, will help nurses and their families learn more about the province’s economic immigration programs and the professional pathways to move to New Brunswick.
Interested nurses will have to register online in order to attend these sessions. They need to furnish details regarding their professional experience and work experience of their spouses in the registration form and upload necessary documents.
New Brunswick has huge demand for nursing professionals. According to the province’s Ministry of Health, there will be a shortage of at least 130 Registered Nurses every year in the next 10 years. So, by 2028, there will be a shortage of more than 1000 Registered Nurses in New Brunswick. The New Brunswick Labour Market Outlook predicts that there will be a total of 4,376 new RN jobs in the province by then. Besides, a significant number of Registered Nurses who are currently employed in the province will be retiring soon. It means more immigrant nurses will be needed to fill these vacancies.
The demand for nurses at New Brunswick is growing at a range of 5% per year. The population of the province is ageing fast and the province has the highest percentage of population above the age of 65 years. Besides, the death rate is higher than the birth rate in the province. As a result, there is more demand for health services and long-term care in New Brunswick. This has propelled the demand for registered nurses (RN) and licensed practical nurses (LPN) in the province.
