The aim of this project was to examine the nature of registered nurses' practice in primary care, acute care, community health, continuing care (home care), and long term care settings in rural and remote Canada. The study provided detailed information that can be employed in policy-making and program planning on the practice, recruitment, retention, and education of nurses in rural and remote Canada. This was a multi-centre, multi-disciplinary study, involving researchers from across the country, including those at CRaNHR.
