Retired and Non-Practising Nurses Called Upon

Calling all nurses-the College of Nurses is reaching out to retired nurses to help fill some of the need in the health care system.

As a number of COVID-19 cases rises and more people become hospitalized, nurses and other health care frontline workers will need to take time off and get a break from the demand.

That’s where the College of Nurses is stepping in, calling on retired nurses to help out surge capacity.

Executive Director of the College of Nurses, Lynn Power says it’s been something that’s been discussed for some time, even before the pandemic.

They’re now ready to launch an emergency licensing process, for retired and non-practicing registered nurses who are eligible to come forward.
