I am planning on moving to Nova Scotia from Ontario, currently hold an Ontario RPN license. Looking for any information from current LPNs in Nova Scotia regarding scope of practice, rate of pay, and job demand. I have heard many rumours regarding the difference in nursing practice between provinces and would really appreciate communicating with a LPN from Nova Scotia to know the facts.
Depends where you work. NSNU will give you an idea on pay. Just check out current collective agreements. The LPNs I work with have a lot of scope and the college of LPNs have a good list. Job demand will depend on where in NS you plan on living and working in.
