Increase in Nursing Ranks

Although nursing numbers are starting to increase there are still several Canadians who do not have a regular primary care provider.  According to the SRNA, we have 127 licensed RN(NP)s, 5 of whom are neonatal RN(NP)s and 3 are adult RN(NP)s.  Two of the adult RN(NP)s are primary care RN(NP)s and the other one is a Women's Health RN(NP).
