Sun Country Health Region partners

Sun Country Health Region (SCHR) has partnered with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health and the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses (SUN) to fund a Professional Development Program for nurses.

Registered Nurses, Registered Psychiatric Nurses and Nurse Practitioners working for the Region are being invited to apply for funding to upgrade their knowledge, skills and abilities through further education.

“We want to encourage more nurses to keep current in their field of practice in nursing,” says Don Ehman, Vice President, Human Resources for the Region.

“Along with SCHR, SUN has said there is an urgent need to stabilize and rebuild the nursing work force in Saskatchewan to ensure the health care system can deliver high quality, timely and accessible health services.”

“We need to meet that goal and this professional development fund will help us to do that,” he says.

 Members of SUN in SCHR are entitled to a one-time bursary of $2,000 towards a new or upgraded nursing certificate and/or up to $800 each year for a continuing education grant, or to attend conferences that relate to health care services.

The SCHR fund is worth $100,000 and will be made available to SCHR’s members of SUN until the depletion of the funds.

Brochures about the program and an application form are available on the www.suncountry.sk.ca website at http://www.suncountry.sk.ca/general/188/education-programs.html
