Internationally educated nurses welcomed into health system in New Brunswick, released by New Brunswick on 30 January 2024

Good day ladies and gentlemen, this is IRC news, I am Joy Stephen, a certified Canadian Immigration practitioner, and I bring to you this Provincial News Bulletin from the province of New Brunswick. This recording originates from the Polinsys studios in Cambridge, Ontario.

Health Minister Bruce Fitch welcomed several internationally educated nurses during a visit to Loch Lomond Villa in Saint John today.

Fitch said it was an opportunity to celebrate the nurses who have made New Brunswick their home and emphasize that recruiting nurses remains a key priority for the government.

“We are committed to growing our health-care workforce to ensure New Brunswickers have access to quality care, and hiring internationally educated nurses is a concrete step on that path,” said Fitch. “I have had the pleasure of meeting some internationally educated nurses from a recruitment mission in the Philippines which resulted in over 180 accepted job offers.”

Since 2021, more than 500 internationally educated nurses have been recruited to work in the province as registered nurses, licensed practical nurses or health-care aides; more than 200 of them are already employed in the province, with others working their way through the immigration process.

The Department of Health regularly attends and organizes recruitment events nationwide in collaboration with its health sector partners.

Internationally educated nurses must meet requirements of the Nurses Association of New Brunswick to work as registered nurses in the province.
