I am a new RPN I took the exam last September 2012 and have been registered since December 2012. I have been looking for jobs online and have been through a few interviews. I was advised to take upgrade course(s) since I am an internationally educated nurse. The same thing I noticed when I look for jobs online especially with hospitals. They have all these requirements for certain certificates such as medication certificate, wound care, assessment, etc. aside from months or years of experience. Something I am obviously still trying to earn.
I decided to post here coz I am not sure which school I should have my upgrade. I live in Mississauga, Ontario, and I would like to have a few tips and ideas which school is best for me location-wise, and also I would like to know if I can do the Assessment Course online? I was told Mohawk school offers online courses for it but I'd also like to know what other options I have before I decide.
If any of you here can give me a link that would be greatly appreciated.
