Welcome to Nursing in Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador (NL) offers rewarding work and personal experiences for nurses in an exceptionally beautiful corner of the world. Job opportunities are available for nurses in remote, rural and urban areas of the province.

Nurses represent the largest percentage of our province's health care workforce, employed in settings such as hospitals, community, long-term care facilities, and Government. Nurses are direct care-givers, educators, counsellors, researchers, administrators, and policy-makers and are truly the heart of the health care system.

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador recognizes the crucial role that nurses play in our health care system. Government is committed to the recruitment and retention of nurses and has a number of programs to support nursing professionals.
