I've worked in BC, Manitoba, Ontario and Nova Scotia. By far the salary and work-life balance have been superior working and living in Nova Scotia. Colleagues on the work team are truly collaborative and respectful. Great salary and benefits, too.

As a new grad, I experienced nothing but bullying from both positions I held with NSHA. Not only from co-workers but mostly from managers. Very unsupportive, unkind and sometimes very unprofessional
Pros
Good pay, benefits
Cons
Bullying, poor management, poor staffing ratios

Enjoy working here. Benefits and salary for full time/ permanent employees are quite good for Cape Breton. It is a safe, friendly place to work. Also the backing of a union.

The benefits and pension plans are both phenomenal. Stable employment, as it's the largest employer in Nova Scotia and healthcare always seems to remain relatively reliable. Great workplace.

Be able to handle death well. If you can then you will be fine working there , as long as you also can work hard and fast. The are 12 hour shifts but time does go really fast while you are there.

A very good job with an excellent wage and meet lots of different people while working with different nursing units. Great job if you don't mind walking and are a people person. We are part of the NSGEU and as such get great benefit, pension and paid time off.
