My partner is a RN originally from Ontario with many years experience as a hospital nurse in the US. I'm finishing up my LPN here in the states.
We want to move to Canada as soon as my permanent residence application is approved. We have family in NB and Ont and are trying to decide whether we want to live in NB or Ont. I know jobs aren't easy to come by in either of these provinces.
I'm hoping to get some insight on the environment for hospital nurses in both provinces. Are you overworked, underpaid, and disrespected?
What type of shifts do you work? Here, you either work 7a to 7:30 p for three days per week for you work 7p to 7:30 a. There are no rotating of shifts. Must you work rotating shifts if you work as a hospital nurse in these Canadian provinces?
We are both anglophones. Can you even get a job as a nurse in NB if tu ne parles pas francais?
Any thoughts on nursing in Ontario and NB would be greatly appreciated.
