On January 30, 2024, New Brunswick's Health Minister Bruce Fitch celebrated the contributions of internationally educated nurses at Loch Lomond Villa, Saint John. The Minister reiterated the government's commitment to healthcare workforce growth, emphasizing the importance of recruiting nurses. Over 180 job offers have been accepted from a recruitment mission in the Philippines, and since 2021, over 500 internationally educated nurses, including registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and healthcare aides, have been recruited. Over 200 are already employed in the province, with others undergoing the immigration process. The process to become licensed in New Brunswick has been expedited for nurses from 14 countries. These nurses can work in support positions before becoming licensed.
