As per the latest government report, there will be a need of internationally trained nurses in New Brunswick to address the increasing shortage of the provincial health-care system.
The document suggests that the province's population is ageing faster than any other jurisdiction in Canada, prompting what it calls a "critical demographic situation."
New Brunswick consists of people that are old and it has the highest percentage of the population over 65 years of age when compared to the rest of Canada. The nurses of the province are also not exempted from this trend-41 percent of registered nurses (RNs) in New Brunswick are 50 years of age or older.
Furthermore, the declining admissions of students in New Brunswick bachelor nursing programs and an abrasion rate of 30 percent for nursing students, the province’s ministry of health projects a shortage of at least 130 registered nurses (RNs) every year over the next 10 years.
This means that there might be a requirement of 1,300 RNs in New Brunswick by 2028, the document reads. During this same period, it is expected that 4,376 RN jobs will open.
To combat the issue, the province identified four key remedies. Among them, one is the active recruitment of IENs from countries identified as having "nursing education programs with similar nursing professional standards, competencies, and credentials" to New Brunswick.
The government also calls for an examination “to identify any barriers, areas for improvement or efficiencies” for IENs and to improve the application process. The strategy also recommends the founding of a program that would help IENs find work in New Brunswick’s health-care industry while their applications for registration are still in progress “to allow for a positive integration into the workforce.”
Also, the province will offer permanent employment (full-time and part-time) to New Brunswick graduates and RNs recruited from other provinces or countries and the possibility of signing bonus in exchange for a three-year commitment to serve in rural areas of the province.
Hugh J. Flemming, New Brunswick Health Minister says, “We are going to continue to face a shortage of nurses unless we take action now to ensure we have enough nurses to serve our population.”
New Brunswick is the friendly province of Canada that is in urgent requirement of registered nurses who can take care of their ageing population.

This is in regard to my journey with Aptechvisa Services. I have experienced here were so far better and I already recommended my multiple friends to them because I can trust their words. I got Aptech visa reference through one of my best friend and today I am in Canada and this all happened just because of Aptech visa.
This is a time to appreciate the performance of Aptech visa. True, Genuine, professional and what not, this is the immigration consultancy to whom we can trust blindly. Due to my age factor I did not score well but more than 400 and this made myself eligible for Ontario and my consultant worked hard in my profile and made it true.
Hope you all are reading my message with Great Spirit. I would rate Aptech 10 out of 10. In between of my application, I have faced a lot of issues in arranging documents but everything went well and there was a continuous support of Aptech which motivated me everything and today I am in Canada, Ontario. Thank you Aptech
Aptech is the best immigration consultant and the staff is of very friendly nature. Since I was there in US, so it was very difficult for me to coordinate with them but they always answered my queries very promptly and meantime, my father was there every time to support me. With the help of Aptech and my father, we got our PR visa for Canada. I am feeling so lucky to be associated with Aptech.
Here we would like to Thank you Aptech visa for all the assistance and help which we have received in our Canada PR visa application throughout the process. They helped me a lot in every manner and it would be an honor if I would say something good about Aptech visa. You guys are really hard working.
Mine was the wonderful journey with Aptech throughout the process. I enjoyed working with them and I would really recommend Aptech to all of you. I have also given a lot of references and in future also will try to refer Aptech to all my known and relatives.
My son has applied for PR visa through Aptech and then he decided to apply for my tourist visa from Aptech only and you can’t believe that I got my visa within 24 hours after applying for the online application. I would really appreciate the work out done by Aptech Global in our applications. Keep working hard guys.
Due to some corrections in my passport, it took more time for me to get the visa but Aptech handled all the things very precisely and smartly. They keep on coordinating with High Commission for my application and did all the conversation on time. Thank you for supporting me.
