NSIENN Research and Advocacy

In 2023, the Government of Nova Scotia awarded funding to the NSIENN to conduct the first-of-its-kind province-wide research on the experiences of IENs in integrating into the Nova Scotia health workforce.

This research seeks to address four main objectives:

First phase

In the first phase of this research, we have been interviewing key partners working with IENs to identify key priorities and support strategies for addressing systemic barriers facing IENs in Nova Scotia.

Second Phase

In the second phase, we invite IENs to participate in a survey on their nursing registration experience, job satisfaction, experience of workplace discrimination and harassment, intention to leave nursing, and professional quality of life.

Third Phase

In the third phase, IENs will be invited to participate in a focus group discussion to discuss their professional and community integration experiences.
