Our Commitment to Hiring Nurses

Horizon follows the Horizon Recruitment Process for nurse recruitment.

In response to the nursing shortage in New Brunswick, we are committed to hiring all qualified nurses who apply, including English-only speaking nurses. Horizon’s Nursing Talent Acquisition Specialists work directly with the nurse candidate to match to a current open vacancy. However, there are many reasons why a nurse may not accept a position including:

  • The current available position(s) are not in areas of interest. Please note that if a specific area of nursing is not available, we will do everything possible to try to get the new hire to their preferred area within a reasonable time of 12 to 24 months.
  • The current available position(s) are not in the location they want to work.  Sometimes nurses choose not to work in their hometowns where immediate family members live. The Horizon Recruitment Team offers a safe space for honest conversations.

Horizon cannot disclose personal recruitment information. If you know someone who has not been accepted into a nursing position at Horizon, please ask them directly why not. Horizon continues to recruit all qualified nurses to our current open vacancies. To view our current opportunities, please visit our Job Bank.
