New Brunswick has partnered with Beal University in Bangor, Maine, to open 100 nursing seats next year to New Brunswick students for their three-year bachelor of science and nursing program.
Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Minister Trevor Holder said the government will offer a $6,000 grant to students to offset the cost of studying there.
The grant is performance-based and will be paid directly to students in two installments of $3,000 each during their second and third years.
Students must sign a return-of-service agreement to work as a registered nurse in New Brunswick for at least one year after graduation.
Beal University President Sheryl DeWalt said the new slots are only for New Brunswick residents.
Horizon Health set a target to hire 708 registered nurses in the 2022-23 fiscal year.
