Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I do not have an opportunity to recognize my constituents too often here since some of them are in small remote communities. I would like to recognize Ralph Sanguez from Trout Lake and sitting next to him is Malcolm MacPhail from Yellowknife.

Question 9-13(8): Role Of Nursing Mentors
Item 6: Oral Questions

September 8th, 1999

Jane Groenewegen Hay River

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I was very pleased to hear the Minister of Health and Social Services, the Honourable Floyd Roland, with his statement today that they have reached an agreement on how they are going to use the $3 million for recruitment and retention. I do have a couple of questions in regard to the statement. He said that part of the funding will be used to hire three full-time nurse mentors who will provide additional support and mentoring to nurses in the field. Perhaps he could describe what that role is and what kind of people they will be using in those positions? Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, the three positions the department has discussed are to help some of our nurses that are coming through the program that the college here in the Territories is offering, and provide the necessary training in the communities and prepare nurses for becoming community nurses. We are doing that in order to help some of the nurses that are new to the Northwest Territories and new nurses overall just coming into the nursing career and profession. We are trying to make the transition as smooth as possible to make sure they maintain confidence while in the North and feel that they are supported in doing their work in the Northwest Territories. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
