  1. Oil and Nursing
    The government will find any and every excuse not to hire. They haven't been hiring in AB since 2012, longer everywhere else. I just shake my head. It's always something.

  2. nursing eating young
    I've worked with many different types of nurses and I've never found that NETY. It's more a tired cliche. If you show a genuine desire to learn and be humble, and accept accountability, you'll be...

    Unless you have a job offer from BC, you'd be wasting your time and money to start the application process at all. There are few jobs in either Province. When I was working rural, we hired new...

  7. What are the stress level ranking for these units?
    I manage a very busy unit. The workload is heavy, but people tell me over and over that they stay for the teamwork and their co-workers. Co-workers and workplace politics will make or break ANY job.

  8. Will putting off my registration fee payment affect my eligibility for registration?

  11. After interview, then what?
    I had a back check reference completed and if I recall correctly, it was after my interview. Also, it can easily take 3 weeks or longer before you're offered a position.

    Possibly they want to interview more candidates before deciding who is in the running as the successful candidate, then check references of those selected.

    The job market has sucked in ON for 7 years. Every Province is facing cutbacks, and as the previous poster mentioned, the US is no better. Try applying to small towns. If you're willing to...

  16. Afraid of loosing my job
    When I started working in hotels many years ago, I learned the hard way about "playing the game." Work is political, whether we want to admit it or not. I tend to be very direct, and it wasn't until...

  17. Crowd funding:  Yay or Nay?
    Asking for help is not the issue. Sometimes we all need help. However, the method that some of you feel is acceptable is what has people offended in this thread. Why should strangers be appealed to...

  21. which province/place in canada is best to work as a nurse
    We have reduced staff in various departments where I work, more to come. Alberta is definitely not seeking more nurses, aside from rural areas where few people want to live.

  22. Crowd funding:  Yay or Nay?
    If someone is crowd funding for school, rather than applying for aide, I would hope that they cut out non essentials such as cable tv, eating out, and extra cell phones at least. The problem is,...

  23. Crowd funding:  Yay or Nay?
