N.L. nurses feeling broken, forced to walk away from jobs they love
Registered nurses tell us they cannot provide the care patients need and deserve – not even close to it. They tell us they are drowning at work and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Registered nurses feel broken and forced to walk away from the profession they love.
In 2022, more than 300 registered nurses in Newfoundland and Labrador either retired early, left the profession altogether or left permanent jobs to go casual. This number doesn’t include normal retirements.
