    as the title states, which Toronto & area hospitals don't hire Registered Practical Nurses?

    Trying to figure out which hospitals to leave out of my RPN job search.

    Thanks!

    St Mikes downtown doesn't hire RPNs, but St Joes and Toronto Western does.

    Hi there, i was interested as to what line of work the RPN's would perform at sick kids. I was trying to find out if they hired RPN's too. I just didn't think so because I saw them to be a prestige teaching/research hospital. Please advise. Thanks.

    Many downtown Toronto Hospitals are "prestige" teaching/research hospitals that hire RPNs. It just depends on the unit and budgeting. My last placement use to have RPNs, and then they decided it was "too acute" for RPNs for awhile. They switched it back again because of budget issues and also because they were getting a lot of chronic "frequent flyers".

    There's not a lot of RPNs on the floor. There was 1-2 RPNs working with ~8-10 RNs per shift. Overall I think there were 2-3 RPNs working in the unit I was on for my last placement. My unit was 2 units in 1 (i.e., it's a big unit), so yes they hire RPNs but sadly, not a lot.
