Shannex is proud to be one of the first committed partners of New Brunswick’s Step Up to Nursing: Earn as You Learn Nursing Education Pathway. Announced on February 24th, Step Up to Nursing will provide Personal Support Workers (PSW) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN) with the opportunity to grow their careers while they work through a combination of on-the-job training and classroom learning with free tuition.
Instrumental to the launch of this project was our New Brunswick Regional Manager of Nursing Homes, Carole Morey. She worked closely with the teams at the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour and the Department of Health to bring Step Up to Nursing to life.
“This program will be perfect for those looking to further their career. They can still stay in the workforce, work part-time and study part-time, and they have an opportunity to advance their skillset and hopefully stay and work with us when they’re done.”– Carole Morey
