A sentencing hearing has begun for a former Ontario nurse who murdered eight seniors in her care.

"I caused tremendous pain and suffering and death", Wettlaufer said after receiving her sentence, adding: "Sorry is much too small a word".

Elizabeth Wettlaufer was given the sentence with no chance of parole for 25 years during her final court hearing today.

Friends of the some of the victims also gathered outside the courthouse in Woodstock, Ontario, on Monday to express their hurt and anger. By then she would be 75, and it was indicated she "may never be parolled".

The province has been under fire, along with Ontario's self-regulatory College of Nurses, for a lack of oversight and transparency in the case after Wettlaufer was sacked from a nursing home for a medication error in 2014, after which more deaths occurred.

Wettlaufer, 50, has pleaded guilty to eight counts of first-degree murder, four counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault in connection with a series of incidents that occurred at nursing homes in Woodstock and London, Ont. Wettlaufer has said she believed she was acting as an instrument of God by injecting her elderly victims with insulin.

Last September, Wettlaufer gave up her nursing licence and checked herself into a Toronto mental-health facility.
