A career in Nursing – Why choose Canada?
We are at a time when all the frontline workers are respected for the work they have done during these tough times. Nursing is one of the well-respected professions in the west. They are also one of the most in-demand professions in Canada.
The Conference Board of Canada has predicted that Registered Nurses (RN) will increase in demand by double in the coming decade.
Let’s discuss why you should invest in a nursing program in Canada
Canada is known for its well-made healthcare system which serves as a lucrative destination for international students seeking a career in nursing. Nurses with speciality skills in emergency rooms, operating rooms and the willingness to work in remote locations alongside indigenous communities have been sought after.
Currently, Canada is experiencing staff shortages in public health services as the wait times have increased due to which public hospitals hire more registered nurses to tend to their patients. This serves as a potential career growth in both the public and private sectors.
Currently, Ontario requires 17,000 plus additional registered nurses to match the national RN to population ratio. Apart from public hospitals, private home care, clinics are some of the places the nurses are in demand.
Unlike other countries, Canada has a healthy work environment. The daily routine of a nurse is stressful but their efforts are well recognized and rewarded from time to time
Canada offers a wide variety of options for nurses from working part-time to full-time, choosing the shift hours, day, night, morning or evening shifts.
A registered nurse in Canada can work in different sectors globally like private, public, community health centres and also as a consultant in health organizations. The opportunities are limitless.
