Nursing licenses are the backbone of many Canadian health care systems.
They cover all health care workers who are in a position to work and care for people, from nurses to nurses’ aides.
They also cover doctors and nurses who are trained to help people with a range of illnesses and conditions.
So when a person is diagnosed with cancer, or has had a stroke, they can take a job as a nurse.
When they have a heart attack, they take care of their patients.
If someone is having a stroke and their heart is failing, they could take care the patient until they’re able to do CPR.
All of this is done in a safe environment that is supervised by a nurse, and nurses are trained in what to do and how to do it.
That means nurses are in the trenches, working alongside physicians and other health care professionals to help patients.
But they are also the ones who are going to make the final call on whether or not a license will be renewed.
That is the case in the case of the nursing license in Prince Edward Island, which is set to expire in December.
As of Tuesday, it had received 5,913 renewal applications, according to a report from the provincial government.
The province has spent $7.6 million on the process.
As a result, there are a lot of nursing licenses that have been set aside for renewal, which has led to a backlog of nearly 30,000 applications.
Some have been waiting for up to six years, according an analysis by the province’s licensing department.
The backlog is costing taxpayers more than $7 million a year.
“In some cases, you have to have a license for six years to get a renewal,” said Donna Jablonski, the minister of health and long-term care in Prince Edwina, which includes the Prince Edward Islands.
“That’s the case here.”
The government is trying to get around that problem by using a process called a waiting period, in which a licensing department officer makes a recommendation on whether a renewal is appropriate.
If the licence is renewed, it must be approved by the licensing department before the waiting period ends.
That process is supposed to take about six months.
The wait time has also caused headaches for the government.
Some nurses have complained that the department doesn’t explain how they are allowed to renew a nursing license and how long it will take to get the renewal.
Other issues are caused by the fact that the licensing officer has to go back to the provincial registry to see if the person has any other licensing related issues.
There have been many complaints that the minister has not been very clear about what he or she is supposed on each application.
“There have been some very clear issues that are not being communicated,” said Maryann Gourlay, the director of the Health Care Licensing Centre at the University of Ottawa.
“The government has to be very clear, clearly communicate the fact, that we are not approving the renewal of any licence, because if we were, then we would be getting rid of the licences.”
Health Minister Tracey Culleton says there are some issues with the process, such as the fact it takes so long to apply for renewal.
“If it takes six months for the minister to decide, we don’t want to do that,” she said.
“It would be like having a lottery.”
But Culleton insists that the process is a fair one.
“I’m sure you can understand the frustration, the frustration that people are having,” she told The Globe and Mail.
“But there’s a process, and you can choose to follow that process or not.”
It is important to remember that a licence does not have to be renewed before the deadline.
It can be renewed after that.
There are a number of other reasons why nursing licenses could be set aside, including that the province is trying a different way to fill a nursing shortage, according.
It is looking to set aside more than 1,200 nursing licenses for people who need them to be able to care for patients and those who have already been issued nursing licenses, according the province.
It says it needs to take a look at other ways to address the shortage, including setting aside up to 1,500 nursing licenses each year.
