Nova Scotia Health Authority (Central Zone: Halifax area and West Hants) is continuing with its Diversity Bursary program as a step to creating a more diverse workforce that better represents the communities we serve.
For the past 10 years, the South Shore Bursary Program has been helping students entering the healthcare field to achieve their goals.. One of those student recipients was Rachel Eddy, who was first awarded the bursary in 2012 when she entered the Practical Nursing program at Nova Scotia Community College.
Nova Scotia Health Authority is thanking community members for their ongoing patience, as well as physicians, staff members and volunteers for all of their hard work, in the wake of a Dec. 17 flood at Yarmouth Regional Hospital. The recovery will take several months.
Infection Prevention and Control is much more than hand hygiene at the bedside. Each and every day, countless people throughout the NSHA are working hard to guide our patients and clients home. Made by Mike Wheatley (South West NSHA), this video shows why we do this important work, and has been submitted to the Association of Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC) Film Festival.
