Temporary Class/License New Grad Ontario

Posted

Hi there,

I am wondering about temporary class/licenses in Ontario. I just graduated and have a job willing to hire me on a temporary license until I write my NCLEX. Do nurses working under a temporary license have the same scope as RNs? Additionally, do they begin the 2+ months of training the same as they would if they were starting their new job post-NCLEX (aka. do they begin in "in-class" component and then work with a preceptor/licensed RN until they are considered independent)? Finally, do nurses working under temporary licenses get paid the same amount as nurses that are fully licensed? Thanks so much!
