  • In NL, there has long been a shortage of licensed practical nurses and personal care workers. In response, training programs have been expanded, bursaries have been offered and nurses from outside of Canada have been recruited. However, a new 460-bed long-term care facility is not up to full capacity as a result of the shortage.
