NS, Canada partner to boost healthcare education

The Government of Nova Scotia and the Government of Canada have partnered on a $355M agreement to provide Nova Scotians with better healthcare. The three-year agreement will focus on a variety of initiatives, including several that will support healthcare education: investments in new nursing programs and nursing seats; the development of a new medical school in Cape Breton; the expansion of paramedic training; and the creation of new residency spaces. “We’re well on our way in implementing Action for Health, our road map for transforming healthcare in Nova Scotia, and changes across the system are making meaningful impacts on the front lines and beyond,” said NS Health and Wellness Minister Michelle Thompson.
