I mean young nurses rush off to the big city, hoping to work at the big fancy hospital, live in a cute modern apartment, spend evenings at the clubs...live the big city dream. However they end up blowing through savings, having to bust tables and live in a dump before having to move back in with dad. I know a few girls who had this general experience.
Toronto is very hard, if not impossible for any new grad to land a job. If haven't done a placement at the facility, or have some serious connections you don't stand any chance. I have read on AN about experienced nurses having a hard time in TO.
I would like to mention you can't just pick your placement wherever. Schools
have contracts based on proximity with the facilities, and schools will not infringe on other schools contracts. For example Niagara school has contracts for 10 students in facility A. If Toronto school tries to put students in facility A, Niagara loses out. It can cause some problems. Also teachers have to visit you, and they don't want to be driving for hours to see one student. However, after saying that some schools offer distance programs....can't hurt to ask.
Good luck, are you dead set in wanting hospital work? Doctors' offices seem to hire a lot too. I it's because they are using RPNs more, therefore hiring.
