Manitoba Nursing Strategy: Eight Year Progress Report (April 2008)

The Manitoba Nursing Strategy announced March 1, 2000 consists of 5 targeted areas:

  1. Increase the Supply of Nurses
  2. Improve Access to Staff Development
  3. Improve the Utilization of Nurses
  4. Improve Working Conditions
  5. Increase Nurses’ Opportunities to Provide Input into Decision-making

Since 2000, great strides have been made to address these five target areas. While much has been done toward achieving the goals and targets set out in 2000, challenges remain and we need to continue to work toward building a sustainable nursing workforce in Manitoba.

The 2008 Manitoba Nursing Strategy Eight Year Progress Report provides an update on achievements made since 2000, as well as the recommendations from the Manitoba Nursing Advisory Council. The ongoing implementation of strategies to meet the five targeted areas of the Nursing Strategy will continue the progress of building a sustainable workforce and help Manitoba to achieve its mission of ensuring its citizens have a health care system that provides care when and where it is needed.
