UNB Strike Weighs Heavy On Nursing Students

As the strike drags on, students at UNB Saint John are getting more nervous and frustrated.

Amanda Linfield is a fourth year nursing student who tells CHSJ News if they don't finish their classroom hours it will impact their perceptorship which in turn means they can't write a national exam in June.

She says if they can't write the exam in June they have to wait until October to write it meaning several months without work even if they do graduate.
