We have a history of training nurses who then go work in B.C. or the U.S. in places where they don’t educate their own. Meanwhile, our political leaders lay off highly skilled nurses and later, realizing we are short, try to hire them back.
A few years ago there was an attempt to get some to return from Texas only to find they had families where they now lived. Our current government has been annoying doctors and nurses so some are considering leaving the province.
With the virus hitting hard, Florida plans to hire thousands of new nurses and you bet they will be recruiting up here. Perhaps when Premier Kenney gets sick he will realize what a dumb move he made.
