The Ontario government is working with employers to create temporary bridging positions to help new nursing graduates find full-time employment immediately upon graduation.
These temporary bridging positions are above staffing complement and fully funded by the government for 6 months. The expectation is that you have a plan for these temporary bridging positions to lead to permanent full-time jobs.
If you are not successful in bridging the new graduate by the end of the 6 months, you will provide 6 weeks of additional, above staffing complement bridging time to allow this transition to occur.
New Graduate Nurses will be paid sector-appropriate wages based on the following:
You are expected to make your best effort to bridge the New Graduate Nurse to permanent full-time employment.
Please refer to the Nursing Graduate Guarantee Guidelines for more information.
