Since the government’s announcement earlier this month, we have heard from many MNU members that the current incentives do not address certain significant areas of nursing and nursing needs.
We know that we have well over 2,000 vacant nursing positions currently in our province. As our President Darlene Jackson has clearly stated, these new incentives are “a positive first step,” but more needs to be done in order to ensure effective and comprehensive measures are in place to properly address our dire nursing shortage in Manitoba.
For those of you that wish to send your concerns to the Health Minister, the Premier, and your MLA, please check behind the MNU Portal for some suggested templates that might assist you in drafting your concerns and communication.
