The CBDHA has spent money attending job fairs in places like Alberta in an attempt to recruit RNs to fill the many vacancies here in Cape Breton. The Health Authority cannot find enough RNs to man its own Emergency Departments on a regular basis, hence the recent rolling closures of Emergency Departments in North Sydney, Glace Bay and New Waterford.
Heard from a Registered Nurse in BC, an RN with extensive experience in ER and ICU. She fancied a change of scene and applied to the CBDHA for one of the many vacancies at either Northside or the Regional. After hearing nothing for a while she called Human Resources to see how her application was faring. She was told that the CBDHA would not be employing her as she was "Too well qualified for them."
I wonder what the CBDHA thinks of its own Registered Nurses?
