New Nurses

at St. Boniface Hospital

Hello and Welcome to St. Boniface Nurses Worksite 5!

Hospital Orientation

Due to Covid-19 in-person hospital orientation has been suspended. In the past, hospital orientation afforded us the opportunity to meet new nurses in person at which time we would provide you with our information package. As in-person meetings are not possible as this time, we are providing you with that information here.

Union Membership

As a new nurse at SBH, it is important that you fill out a Manitoba Nurses Union (MNU) membership form. This allows Worksite 5 and MNU provincial to add you to their membership. Submitting a membership form will also ensure you are getting the most up-to-date information on Covid-19 as well as other issues, from Worksite 5 and the provincial MNU.

MNU membership application forms are available online via the MNU website Click on Member Resources. Scroll down to the new membership application. Fill out the form (your facility is St. Boniface Hospital) and submit.

After you’ve submitted a new membership application, email and request your MNU ID number. MNU will send you your MNU ID number along with instructions on how to access the MNU Portal to create your profile inclusive of a password.
