“As Regional Nurses with Labrador-Grenfell Health, we provide Primary Health Care; that means that our community clinic doesn’t just focus on treating sick people, but on keeping people well with an emphasis on disease prevention and health promotion. Regional Nurses and Nurse Practitioners on the coast of Labrador are registered nurses with additional education in health assessment, diagnosis and the management of illnesses and injuries. We are able to diagnose and treat common illnesses, order and interpret diagnostic tests, prescribe medication and perform specific procedures within our scope of practice. There’s much we can do if we all work together as a team, we as nurses along with the people of Hopedale; it will be challenging but also very exciting and ultimately, rewarding for us all” Debbie Blois, Regional Nurse in Hopedale, Labrador.
