Welcome to Nurse Recruitment and Retention

The Department of Health Services has a responsibility of ensuring the safety and quality of nursing care provided to our patients. A critical component of safety and quality is a solid nursing infrastructure incorporating an efficient recruitment and retention plan. The infrastructure consists of having on-site Nurse Recruiters to assist applicants and new hires through the in-boarding process.

Recruitment is about bridging the experience, knowledge and skills of the Registered Nurse and other health care professionals and matching them with the specific patient care needs of the Department of Health Services.
