New Brunswick’s pilot project employs 80 Internationally Educated Nurses and plans for large recruitment ahead!

80 Internationally Educated Nurse (IEN) have been recruited through a recruitment program in New Brunswick, Canada. And 150 more nurses are all set to migrate and work through this program in the next 12 months. Furthermore, the federal government is actively planning to bring in more IENs to increase their workforce and develop the healthcare system.

New Brunswick’s Health minister Dorothy Shephard has made it clear that this move will increase the workforce to suffice the shortages of nurses. Adding to it, she stresses the need for developing healthcare owing to the aging population. This program will be a dual-edge approach to increase population through migration and grow the healthcare system of New Brunswick.

Where did the 80 IENs get employed?

55 Internationally educated nurses were employed at the Horizon Health Network, 12 by Vitalité Health Network, and 13 have been offered careers at Nursing homes across the province.

How’s the Recruitment Program working?

This program works with a coalition of provincial departments such as Health and Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour, and New Brunswick’s Department of Employment and Social Development of Canada. The program is considered successful, with many internationally educated nurses interested in New Brunswick’s recruitment program.

This program supports nurses with immigration, employment, and eligibility requirements. Post-Secondary Education, Training, and Labour Minister Trevor Holder expressed delight and said it was encouraging to see many new nurses hired through the program.

Big opportunity for Internationally Educated Nurses (IEN)

150 Internationally educated nurses are already ready to get employed across New Brunswick (NB) in 12 months.  Minister Trevor Holder has thrown light on investment by the federal government to grow and refine the pilot program. This statement by Holder highlights the expansion of the workforce to make it a full-staffed healthcare system in the year ahead. New Brunswick’s investment is a ray of hope for internationally educated nurses willing to migrate to Canada.

New Brunswick’s Vision
