I am an RN in Canada, and over the summer while on vacation in northern Canada, I started thinking about nursing up north. I became aware that a number of small towns and villages in the north lack easy access, often only by plane.
Here is my question. Do you think an RN (or possibly an NP) with a pilot's licence would be a valuable asset in the north? For example the nurse could fly into the communities and provide care, such as immunizations etc. How likely would getting this sort of position be?
I would like to hear from nurses with experience in the north (not necessarily just the Canadian north), but any input would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
