1 Looking for a rewarding career? Health care is a great choice! Working in the field of health care is a challenging and very rewarding career path. There are many professional choices available depending upon your interests the more familiar professions such as a nurse or doctor but also laboratory, diagnostic imaging (x-ray), physiotherapy and occupational therapy and many others. The Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA), along with its Cumberland County foundation partners, wants to encourage local students to consider health care as their field of study and we are eager to offer young people the opportunity to come back to their home area to live and work following their postsecondary education. In order to make the decision to enter the field of health care a little easier, and to help students with the cost of their education, the NSHA has teamed up with the county s health care foundations to establish the Cumberland Health Care Careers Bursary Program. The program provides up to $5,000 for each year of study within the related health-care field, the option of summer employment while in the course of study and guaranteed a full-time position upon successful completion of studies. In return, students must sign a contract with the health authority for a return for service upon graduation equal to the number of years for which they receive a bursary. This means that a student who receives a bursary for four years will be expected to work for the health authority for four years following graduation. Students will be placed, at the discretion of the NSHA, where there is the greatest need for staff with their type of training and could be at any of the NSHA s Cumberland County facilities which are located in Advocate Harbour, Amherst, Parrsboro, Pugwash and Springhill. One of the main criteria for awarding bursaries in any particular year is the anticipated job vacancies at the time the student will graduate. Accordingly, this handbook highlights the health care professions that the NSHA sees as potential human resource needs in the coming years. This booklet gives an overview of the nature of the work and the earning potential upon graduation. It also provides information on education requirements and where the programs of study are offered. The data on universities/colleges is not a complete list of education options and we are not endorsing any particular program but simply wish to help you in your decision-making process. The information is, of course, subject to change and we suggest that you contact the education institutions directly or speak with your high school guidance counselor for more details. We ve also included a bursary application form. If you chose to pursue a career in health care, we encourage you to apply for a Cumberland Health Care Careers Bursary. If one of the careers in this handbook sounds interesting and you would like the opportunity to learn more or perhaps job shadow a professional for a day, please contact our Communications/Public Relations Department at or the Human Resources Department at extension They would be pleased to hear from you. Best of luck with all your future endeavours! Nova Scotia Health Authority
