Evidence Note on Workforce Integration
PUBLICATION TYPE Fact sheet/evidence note
The nursing workforce in Ontario is expected to reduce over the next decade, negatively impacting the healthcare system. An aging workforce combined with a more senior population could mean there will be more patients in Ontario and a smaller number of nurses to care for them.
Employing Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs) will ensure Excellent Care for All by implementing quality improvement plans so a diverse integrated workforce can respond to varied patient needs.
