Last week, the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses and Sask Party Leader, Brad Wall, were calling on the health region to provide a plan on how they will recruit nurses.


We caught up with Bryce Martin, Executive Director of Communications with Cypress Health, he says the region is approaching recruitment on a variety of levels.

Martin says they have recently hired both registered nurses and licenced practical nurses.

Martin adds other recruitment initiatives include bursaries for 3rd and 4th year registered nursing students, relocation services, high school work experience programs and practicums with Saskatchewan and Alberta universities.

The Cypress Health Region currently has 8 vacant registered nursing positions, including temporary, permanent, part-time and full-time employment.
