The call continues for more nurses to help fight the pandemic here in Manitoba.

Health Minister Cameron Friesen announced on April 1st that the province was changing the rules to help bolster health-care staff by temporarily allowing nurses currently not practicing to register for work. 


Katherine Stansfield, the CEO and Registrar for the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba explains the temporary registration is for a four month duration and it can be renewed once.  She notes it’s a very time limited registration and it is essentially for support of the care of individuals during the pandemic but that doesn’t restrict those registered nurses who are registered under this classification to only care for patients who have COVID-19.


The College of Registered Nurses is waiving the application and registration fee to support this initiative and the government of Manitoba is covering the liability protection for these nurses.
