Hi, I like both BSN programs and my goal is to get a job in downtown Toronto at one of the hospitals. Is Humber a good enough program to get hired in this area? Humber is so much more affordable than U of T, although U of T is directly connected to the Toronto hospitals 😕 

 

thanks!!

Employers really don’t care where you went as long as you have a license.

I say your experiences, how you write your cover letter/resume and interview skills matter more. I graduated from UOIT now known as Ontario Tech U and I work downtown and I think doing my consolidation placement on the same type of unit helped.

Hey, thanks for replying and CONGRATS on the job!! Did you get to do downtown Toronto placements while at UOIT? and do you know if getting a job at a downtown hospital depends a lot on knowing someone who works there?

Thank you!

I only did one placement downtown at the Princess Margaret Hospital on one of the clinics. My placements locations Markham Stouffville, PMH, NYGH and SHN Centenary site. 

If you do know someone working downtown and you want to work on the same unit, it def an advantage just because they can ask their managers directly. But not everyone has that advantage. 

I also took advantage of the Ontario new hire program on the hfo website.
