Nurse Practitioner Recruitment and Retention Strategy

SANP is pleased to partner with the Ministry of Health for the Recruitment and Retention Strategy for NPs.  The Minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health, Randy Weekes, announced the strategy on April 3, 2014.  This is the product of collaboration with the Ministry and SANP.  Thanks are also due the Minister for Advanced Education Rob Norris for supporting 5 new NP seats.  This is a new strategy to bring more NPs to rural communities with a population of 10,000 or less.
