Participate in the Canadian Nurse Practitioner Study!

Survey now closed.


The Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions has launched a Nurse Practitioner (NP) project aimed at developing recommendations for governments and policy-makers across Canada to improve NP working conditions to better attract and retain NPs, and expand NP positions throughout the health care system.

About three million Canadians receive care from an NP, but their numbers are not sufficient to meet the growing needs of an aging population. The supply of NPs in most provinces is very small, with more than half working in Ontario.

The CFNU study will use a brief online survey and focus group interviews to explore the socioeconomic conditions of NPs across the country, including salary, benefits, employment status, working hours, funding models, roles and settings of employment.

For the project to be successful, a high level of participation in the online survey is essential. If you are a Canadian Nurse Practitioner please share your experiences before January 12.

We also encourage NPs and NP advocates to share this survey with their members and/or colleagues through one-on-one conversations, email and social media promotion.

Resources for promoting the NP survey, including a sample email, social media posts and shareable advertisements, are available for download below.
