The system is broken.
New Brunswick nurses are on the frontlines of our healthcare system, but they are at their breaking point. They navigate a broken system in crisis while providing the best solutions and care they can. As the nursing shortage continues, mental wellbeing, work-life balance, and the ability to provide necessary patient care and education suffers.
They show up for New Brunswickers when we need it most. Now we must show up for them.
Nurses need your help holding things together. Learn how you can take action.
