I'm currently in grade 12 and I live in the Toronto area. I'm extremely passionate about going into nursing and becoming an RN, however, I do have a few concerns.
1. I just wanted to know after your 4 years of undergrad, is it easy to find a job in the Toronto area? And if you're just a general RN without a specialty, what do you generally do at work? Is it true that where you do your clinical placements is usually your first job if you do really well there?
2. What is typically an entry level salary for an RN in Toronto or Ontario in general?
3. After say 2-5 years of working, what is an average salary in Toronto/Ontario area?
I just wanted to know if it was possible to make over 80k or even 100k with experience? Not that I'm money hungry or anything, but everything in Toronto is getting more expensive and living in Toronto isn't cheap either, and if I'm thinking about the future, having a family, taking care and providing for them and my parents, as well as treating myself from time to time. I wanted to know if an RN job would get me through comfortably?
