The University of Manitoba has announced that it will be adding a third nursing intake to address the shortage of nurses in the province. The additional intake will see 120 students start their studies in May 2023. As a result of the new intake, UManitoba will produce 50% more nursing graduates. “We will be playing our part in contributing to addressing the nursing storage,” said UManitoba College of Nursing dean Dr Netha Dyck. Most graduates are expected to stay in the province to work, as Dyck noted that 97% of the university’s graduates are employed in MB.
