Meds, delegation, diabetes, dealing with difficult people. Warning signs.
What would you advice new grads do in order to find a job in Edmonton? Is long term care less competitive?
My health authority is seeing a demand for 8s. The rotations changed and the long stretches of time off disappeared. The young ones have children and can't find childcare.
Hi! I saw a lot of postings online on AHS and Covenant Health. Did you apply all of them? Chances are one interview out of 50+ applications.
Also, do you have previous work experience in nursing like a healthcare aide etc?
No, and no.
Now go and troll on some other forum
Every intake is different.
I've never met anyone who got in with omly 65%. I've heard some years it's been 85+.
You won't know until the acceptance letters are issued
My experience has been pain. With the old machines and the new.
Breast Cancer has become an industry.
Our NICU is a mixed bag. Own scrubs with a peds theme top. Hospital issue pants with tee shirts with NICU slogans.
I clicked the link.
It's all answered in the FAQ page.
Does Canada require you to be bilingual in French and English?
Right, I'm more interested in clinics that do scopes.

Adult acute care in Canada.
Rooming in with Mum is the norm in my area.
Nursery Nurses gave the first bath, monitored babes who's Mum's were off unit for tests or to smoke (don't be judgmental), or were just plain exhausted. The NN was also responsible for doing the car seat monitoring, monitoring jaundiced babes under the lights, etc.
Yes there were moments to hold and rock, but some parents don't want you to do it.
"be tended to" that's Mum's job.
Things to consider:
Are you fluent in oral and written medical Italian
Do you have EU citizenship
European nurses aren't paid as well as North American nurses
I remember when in the 1990s Canada had a contract with the University of California San Francisco Children'd Hospital for sick babies and children to be flown there from the Northwest Territories for care. The most common was repair of a congenital heart defect. Often one or both parents would fly with their child.
The NWT Health Care Plan paid for this.
I believe there others.
I met a nurse who lives and works in Houlton Maine who gets all her healthcare in Canada. She holds dual citizenship.
