Rural & Northern Opportunities

RNAO Recommendations

Create Rural and Northern Opportunities

  1. Develop a health human resources strategy specifically for rural and northern communities that would address educational requirements, recruitment and retention, and the role of RNs in building a robust rural and northern health-care system.
  2. Expand the 1:1 tuition reimbursement to new nursing graduates who choose to relocate to northern, rural and underserviced communities to include RN and RPN graduates from all regions of the province.
