April 24, 2023 – CBC PEI: As many as 31 new nurses could be heading to Prince Edward Island thanks to an international recruitment mission last month.
Officials with the province’s Office of Immigration and Health PEI conducted interviews with dozens of internationally educated nurses in Dubai in March.
The process was “very impactful and very successful,” said Rebecca Gill, PEI’s acting director of health recruitment.
“They’re excited to come to Prince Edward Island, they’re excited to be part of our health-care system and make a difference. It’s a very significant effort so I do look forward to them continuing in the future.”
The immigration process is underway and arrival dates will vary, but Gill said the majority are expected to land later this year and into early 2024.
