The purpose of this study is to describe the nursing resources available in Manitoba as of April, 1995 and to delineate possible policy initiatives based on the collected data. After years of inattention and neglect, the topic of nursing resources planning is now one of the priorities of most health departments across Canada including that of our province of Manitoba. This study represents one of the first attempts to gather and collate, in consistent format, data on the various categories of nursing personnel within the province. The baseline information is required in order to formulate Human Resources strategies within a health care system which is facing the need for massive change and major reform.
