(MONCTON) – Horizon has expanded the Horizon Referral Reward to include Nurse Practitioners. New Brunswick residents, along with Horizon staff and physicians, can now refer an eligible Registered Nurse (RNCA) or Nurse Practitioner (RNCD) to work for Horizon and receive a $1,000 Horizon Referral Reward. There is no limit to how many candidates one individual can refer.

And right now, for a limited time, if a Registered Nurse is successfully referred to work in one of Horizon’s Critical Care Units or Emergency Departments, the reward will be DOUBLED. That’s $2,000!

“As Recruitment and Retention remain a key priority in Horizon’s Critical Action Plan, we continue to evolve our recruitment efforts to align with staffing needs,” said Gail Lebel, Horizon’s Vice President and Chief Human Resource Officer. “The goal of this program is to engage our staff, physicians and New Brunswickers in recruiting health care workers.”

“We want to express our sincere gratitude to everyone who has already submitted a referral,” said Kerry Kennedy, Director of Talent Acquisition. “You are helping to support our existing dedicated health care teams in providing quality care to our patients and communities.”
