Hi, I'm a RN student in Ontario and I'm super confused. Whenever I come on here and other nursing forums it seems there are no RN jobs in Ontario and that new grads aren't able to find their first job, etc.
However, I was under the impression that new grads were guaranteed 6 months of employment full time upon graduation. Is there some catch to this that I don't see on the website? Because it sounds like everyone should be able to get that foot in the door through that initiative, and then have at least 6 solid months of experience on their resume...
Could some new grad out there tell me what's up with that!! I just assumed I'd be able to get a job since the website says it's a guarantee....
The employers who do not hire new grads into permanent positions following completion of the initiative are required to pay the Ontario government back. The catch to the new grad initiative, is that it is only a good opportunity for employers who have adequate vacancies to hire the new grads into permanent positions. If they cannot hire the new grad and have to pay the money back, it is waste of the employer's money.
