New Brunswick has exempted registration fees for newly graduated nurses

New Brunswick’s Provincial Government and the Nurses Association of New Brunswick have collaborated to exempt new nursing graduates from first-time registration fees. Health Minister Bruce Fitch highlighted the importance of this initiative in bolstering the healthcare system and reducing barriers for nurses entering the profession. The government has committed $2.7 million to this five-year initiative, saving each new graduate around $500. Minister Arlene Dunn praised the increase in nursing program enrolments and expressed support for measures that ease students' transition into the healthcare system. Denise LeBlanc-Kwaw, the association’s CEO, appreciated the shared vision and collaboration that made this change possible. This follows a previous collaboration to reduce financial barriers for internationally educated nurses.
