We are an active participant in the Province’s:
Nursing Graduate Guarantee (NGG) Initiative, offering Ontario’s nursing graduates exciting opportunities to learn and grow.
Nursing Career OrIENtation (NCO) Initiative, which supports internationally-educated nurses newly registered in Ontario to practice in an Ontario health care setting.
These initiatives assist the new nursing graduate in gaining full-time experience, transition into the workforce and help to ensure new nurses are comfortable working in their units as key members of our health care team. Through this program, we are able to provide an extensive orientation program. Nurses have opportunities to be mentored and supported on the units by a variety of nursing disciplines.
In Spring 2007, the Ministry created an on-line job portal which serves as a meeting place for employers and new nursing graduates. For complete details on the NGG and NCO initiatives, as well as to determine your eligibility and access the job portal, please visit the MoHLTC HealthForce Ontario website.
Since 2007, HSN has hired more than 500 nurses under the Nursing Graduate Guarantee (NGG) initiative.
This program enables nurses over the age of 55 to spend a portion of their working hours in roles that enable the organization, patients and colleagues to benefit from their knowledge and expertise.
