Nurse Practitioners are eligible for $1,200 pandemic payment

After seeking clarification from the Alberta government, United Nurses of Alberta has now been informed that Nurse Practitioners are eligible to receive the $1,200 pandemic payment for front-line workers announced on Feb. 10.

NPs employed by Alberta Health Services should receive the payment automatically.

Since the payment must be applied for by other employers, UNA recommends that NPs not employed by AHS contact their employer to ensure the application is made on their behalf.
