A Warning From Nurses In Province

More than 2 thousand registered nurses in the province are over 55 and almost one-third of R-N's in New Brunswick will be retiring in the next five years. 

The President of the Nurses Union Marilyn Quinn has been asking for a six month freeze in nursing layoffs but there has been no response from the province. 125 nursing positions have been cut in 2012-2013. 

The union also pointing out there is little in the government's new five year healthcare plan about a strategy to deal with this.
