PEI hired hundreds of internationally trained nurses and care support workers

Prince Edward Island recruited over 500 nurses and care support workers to address staffing shortages and improve patient care.

Collaborative efforts by Health PEI, the Recruitment and Retention Secretariat, and the Public Service Commission have streamlined hiring processes.

Since January 2023, the province hired 547 staff in various roles, with 147 of them being new graduates. A new online portal simplifies applications for registered nursing positions, attracting both local and international applicants.

Recruitment missions in Dubai and Singapore have resulted in 57 employment offers, with a second Dubai mission planned for 2024.

Health PEI has also created numerous new positions and continues to build an internal talent acquisition team to support recruitment.
