Canada needs nurses. They are the backbone of the healthcare industry and are often the people who do all "dirty work" in hospitals and ERs across the country. They literally are saving lives every day and that's why Canadians should love and appreciate them.\nAs it turns out, Canadians do love nurses, and also love being them. According to the 2016 Canadian census, nursing is the second most common job for women in Canada. And while the entire country is unified by our desire to work in that industry, each province does things a little differently.\nView this post on Instagram Don’t miss your chance to be a certified nurse!

This means that when it comes to things like regulations, licensing, and hours, it's going to be slightly different for a nurse in Newfoundland than for another in Alberta.\nA big difference across the country is salary. When it comes to nurses, there seem to be a million different factors that go into determining the hourly wage, like the type of nurse (Registered [RN], Licensed Practical [LPN], etc.), years of experience, and qualifications.

But what I do know is that I am happy with the journey so far. I cannot let those who have brought me down 🧏♀️, take away from the people who have brought me back whole, and then some.❤😁 @onceuponatime09 @echave27 @michellenramsey @spaine81....some of the best listening ears around...My family is dealing with a lot at this time so I know it was in the cosmic Karma to place me right back here with them, as well. Everything truly does happen for a reason. So, whenever I start to doubt myself or the circumstances I am propelled into, I will remind myself to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. ✌❤🧡💛💚💙💜👩⚕️ . . . . . . . . . #travelingsoul #travelnurses #travelnurselife #gypsylife #gypsysoul #nurse #nurselife #nurses #nursesunite #healthcareheroes #healthcareprofessionals #covid_19 #coronaviruspandemic #coronavirus #ernurse #ertravelnurse #ernurselife #louisianagirl #nursesofinstagram #happy A post shared by @ kristenkrn1 on Jun 13, 2020 at 10:02pm PDT\nThe highest hourly wage of any nurse in Newfoundland is $56.50/hour for class 37, Nurse Specialist with level 6 experience.\nThe lowest hourly wage of any nurse is $31.82/hour for an unregistered nurse or student nurse, which is one of the highest graduate nurse wages in the country.\nNurses across the country can make well upwards of $100,000 annually, assuming they're the most qualified and experienced in their field, while starting wages for students range anywhere for $20-30/hour.
