  7. RNs/RPNs are you allowed to apply to other "healthcare" positions?

    Hi there, The positions are open to all who qualify. Personally, if it was me, I would create a whole new resume for any non nursing positions. Replace your nursing education information with your high school information. If you get hired on and h...

  9. So, What happens if you're a year post graduation and still NO job?

  13. Any Ontario OR nurses in here?

    Hi there, I am a recent RPN new grad and when looking for work, I noticed the positions hiring for an OR nurse required a special certificate to practice in this area. So it looks like you will need to enroll at a school. I have just started the OR...
