  1. Hold out for New Grad program or keep searching?

    You've only had telephone conversations that you initiated? You haven't been offered an interview? You are putting all your eggs in one basket hoping that you will be accepted into the employer's new grad program. If you are not offered a position in...
  2. Starting Homecare Agency in Ontario

    Have you looked on the Ontario government website? The legal requirements for home care agencies, labour laws, WSIB, occupational health and safety laws, keeping patient's health records, etc should be listed. Also, look on government of Canada's web...

    If you don't want to go through the licensing process, but yet still want to meet US and other international nurses, suggest you consider joining an international professional association in the specialty area that you work in. If you attend the prof...
  5. Dual citizen (Canadian/NZ) RN working in U.S.

    I don't know, it seems you are at a point in your life where you do not have dependents and are basically free to move and try a different life experience. It might be worth investing a bit of time and money in becoming licensed and see what happens ...

    Suggest you check with a lawyer who is familiar with TN visa requirements before you invest time and money into your plans. Your motives are likely to be questioned by border authorities and it may be a problem if you come across as a self motivated...
  8. RN working as AIN?

    @companisbiki which government authority is or was granting licenses to health care aids/ personal support workers? These positions do not have legislation that requires them to be licensed and they are not regulated by nursing regulatory bodies.
  9. I believe nnas will give the advisory reports for both RN & PN at the same time. It is quite possible that your education will be somewhat comparable or not comparable to Canadian RN entry to practice competencies, but may be comparable to Canadi...
  10. Your doctor wrote a note for you to be on modified duties and you have been assigned administrative work, the employer placed you on administrative duties pending investigation of a patient complaint, but in this case being assigned administrative wo...
  11. RN working as AIN?

    If you move to Ontario, you might find an employer willing to hire you as a health care aid/ personal support worker, but there is a lot of competition for most health care jobs and you might be bypassed for someone who has completed a PSW program an...
  12. CNO Jurisprudence Exam

    I believe you need to activate an account in order to do the jurisprudence exam. Once you complete the jurisprudence exam ask the CNO what the next steps are. CNO directs applicants to do the jurisprudence exam early on in the application process, an...

  14. Nursing burnout suggestions

    The starting point is listening to the staff nurses in your workplace, find out from them how they define burnout and if their perception is that there is a high level of burnout in the workplace, if so what do they believe is the root cause for the...
  15. CNO Jurisprudence Exam

    If CNO's letter does not contain any other information regarding your next steps, you should contact them for clarification. In the meantime go ahead and do the jurisprudence exam. Being eligible to write the jurisprudence exam and passing the exam d...
