Canada Aims To Help Internationally-Educated Nurses Get Jobs Through Mentorships

Canada injected another $388,000 this week into a national association’s program to help internationally-educated nurses more quickly integrate into the country’s healthcare system with a mentorship pilot program.

“We need a healthy workforce to get Canadians the care they need. That starts with making sure health workers are supported so they can do what they do best: care for Canadians,” said Health Minister Mark Holland.

“This investment will help more internationally-educated nurses (IEN) join the workforce in Canada to help our current workforce and get more nurses into our health care system even faster.”
