From Community to Hospital

  1. Hello,

    Got my nursing license in Sept 2011. I am currently working as a client services supervisor for a homecare agency. I am hoping to move on to hospital nursing by the end of 2013. I want to stay here for a bit because I get my weekends off and need them for upcoming weddings. Wondering how difficult is it to go from community to bed side. I want to start off anywhere in the hospital if at all possible.

    Depends on which province you are in.

    Try looking for a casual opening now. It's a foot in the door. Expect to wind up on medicine or surgery. You will rarely get to a specialty unit on this basis.

    Good luck with the hunt
