Nursing care is often seen as a lucrative, low-cost service, but it can be even more lucrative for employers.
A new study finds that more than half of employers in Canada do not offer paid nursing jobs to nurses, while the rest offer paid positions to other professionals.
“There are significant differences in the way that these positions are paid and the pay scale for them,” said Anne-Marie Nardin, a senior research fellow at the Canadian Institute for Research on Women (CIRW) and one of the authors of the study.
The report comes as Canada prepares to celebrate its centennial, which is expected to see many of the country’s best-known industries move to a new and improved model of economic growth and growth opportunity.
The study found that more and more employers are now considering the potential of hiring nursing care workers in their business, as well as in their retirement.
The authors also found that there are more and better paid jobs available in nursing care.
“What is unique is that the pay structure of nursing care is changing,” said Nardine.
“In many ways, nurses have become the new frontline workers.”
Nursing care can also have a major impact on the health of a person, especially if the person is under stress, said Nardi.
“It’s not just about the nurse.
It’s also about the other person,” said the senior research associate.
For example, if the employer is paying an extra wage to the nurse to get more work done, there could be an impact on that person’s health.
But this is happening not just with nursing care, said the research associate, but also with other industries such as retail, manufacturing and transportation.
“A lot of times the wages in those sectors are lower than those of nurses,” she said.
The research is the first of its kind, the researchers say, and it has important implications for how the Canadian health care system works.
The work was funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation and was co-authored by Nardi and Dr. Anne-Martha Zablocki, an associate professor at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management.
Nardi said the study is not the first to look at the different types of nursing jobs and their pay structures.
“We’ve looked at a lot of different aspects of nursing, from nursing home care to teaching, but we haven’t looked at how these different types have different pay scales,” said she.
The researchers say there is a huge demand for nurses in Canada, and that they are finding it increasingly difficult to find a job in Canada.
But many people have an idea about what they want to do with their lives, and this report offers a glimpse into the potential.
For a nurse, the average pay was $51,000 in 2014, according to the 2015 Canadian Nursing Salary Survey.
“The pay gap between nurse and non-nurse has grown over the last few decades,” said Dr. Nardina.
“There are some nursing professionals who are very happy with their jobs and there are others who aren’t.
This is a good time to think about what you want to become when you’re older, Nardi says. “
This is not just a question of whether there’s an employer who is offering paid or unpaid nursing care jobs, it’s also a question about the nature of the employment.”
This is a good time to think about what you want to become when you’re older, Nardi says.
It can be an interesting profession, and there is an opportunity for those who want to stay in the industry to become successful.
“What we are doing with this study is looking at the changing nature of these different professions and asking if the pay scales and the job descriptions reflect the reality that people are looking for,” said Darryl Smith, president of the Canadian Association of Nurses.
“As we move into the future, the number of people looking for jobs in nursing and the number that are able to find those jobs is going to be greater than ever before.”
