Internationally Educated Nurses 

Were you educated as a Registered Nurse in a country outside of Canada?
Are you interested in working and living in New Brunswick? 

We want you to join the team as a Patient Care Attendant (PCA) and we will support you in becoming a Registered Nurse (RN) here in New Brunswick.

We are actively recruiting Internationally Educated Nurses to join our team in New Brunswick, Canada.

You could have the security of a job and the chance to get familiar with Horizon while completing your requirements to register with the Nurses Association of New Brunswick (NANB) as a Registered Nurse.

As a Patient Care Attendant, you will play a supportive role to the health care delivery team. You will primarily be responsible for taking care of a patient’s basic needs – an important part of providing exceptional care.

Then as an RN, you will be critical in Horizon’s ability to provide exceptional care. With a team of over 4,000 RNs, you will work directly with physicians and other health care professionals to assess patients, create care plans, provide treatment, and monitor patient recovery and progress.


Between December 2021 and March 2022 alone, New Brunswick recruited 200 Internationally Educated Nurses
to work in facilities across the province.

Ling was a cardiac-surgical Registered Nurse in China for 12 years before coming to Canada and joining the Horizon team.

“New Brunswick is a nice place that allows nurses to have affordable houses and good pay, without too much stress on living cost,” she said. “I have a feeling of home and a work environment where coworkers are so nice to each other, without discrimination.”

Karol was a Registered Nurse in the Philippines before joining the Horizon team.

“New Brunswick is very suitable for our family, as it is safe and people are very welcoming and friendly,” she said.

“Nurses: always believe in yourselves because we can contribute and make a difference in the lives of our patients!”

ChristineHorizon’s Miramichi Regional Hospital

Christine was a Registered Nurse in the Philippines and Saudi Arabia before beginning her career here.

“It may be daunting at first at the same time as exciting, but once you have settled down and become familiar with the custom and structures it will almost feel like home.”

“I am fortunate to have met and have worked with friendly people in Canada so far and they have made me feel welcomed. Thank you, Canada, and thank you New Brunswick!”
