Result of Nurse Practitioners Occupational Review.
Earlier today, the provincial government released the outcome of the Occupational Review for Nurse Practitioners. This review was agreed to in our last round of provincial collective bargaining.
The Occupational Review determined that the salary scale for NPs under the old classification system is to be adjusted from NS32 to NS35 retroactive to July 1 of 2013. Visit myRNU to see government’s review result document.
Please note: This review was conducted under the old classification system. Nurse Practitioners who have filed PDQs under the new JES or who wish to do so should continue with that course of action as it is unrelated to the Occupational Review results announced.
