NSNU to release report into roles of nurses in primary healthcare

The Nova Scotia Nurses' Union (NSNU) will soon release the findings from a year-long study on the role of nursing in primary healthcare.

The union says the report, titled Nursing Potential - Optimizing Nursing and Primary Care, examines how nurses can work to their full scope of practice while helping to build better access to care.

The report contains 34 recommendations.

Details will be released at a news conference at the NSNU office in Dartmouth Tuesday morning.

NSNU president Janet Hazelton will be in attendance, along with the authors of the report and frontline nurses.
