Nursing Positions in Acute and Continuing Care


Nova Scotia's scenic diversity is impressive - from the rocky shores of Peggy's Cove on the South Shore, to the Cape Breton Highlands; from the pastoral serenity of the fertile Annapolis Valley to the perennial wonder of the world's highest tides in the Bay of Fundy.

Whether you want to live and work in an urban area such as greater Halifax-Dartmouth, Sydney, Truro or Yarmouth; or a rural area such as Antigonish, Liverpool or Digby, Nova Scotia has something for you. In Nova Scotia you are never more than 56 kilometers from the sea!
