About this site

Of the Winnipeg Health Region's 28,000 employees, about 8,000 of them are nurses. With over 200 health services, facilities and programs (including community hospitals, long term health care centres, personal care homes and community health offices), nurses are working in a variety of capacities - direct care, education, research and in administration.

Nursing assessments and interventions are improving the quality and safety of health care in our system. With their unique position on the frontlines of health care, nurses contribute to saving lives, promoting health and reducing adverse outcomes for patients, residents and clients.

The unique relationships nurses develop with the people we care for is a critical aspect of nursing. Surveys consistently show that nurses are amongst the most trusted professionals by the public. This is not surprising and is as a result of the relationships nurses develop with people every day. Nurses provide information about the current plan of care and relevant health education. They take the time to be empathetic listeners.

Each and every day in the Winnipeg Health Region, nurses are doing incredible work that is making a difference. By focusing on their specialty, exploring opportunities within their scope of practice, improving care and employing creative problem solving skills, nurses are contributing to creating better health outcomes for people. They're also taking person-centred care one step further.

Our goal is to make this webpage your first stop for nursing information. We've compiled information that can help you find a nursing job in the Region and support your employment and professional development. Resources that can help improve your health and wellness, your quality of life and help you reach your career goals are all at your fingertips, a mere click away.
