New Grad Workshops at RPNAO

In pursuing your practical nursing career, RPNAO offers a unique and specialized support system to help you achieve your goals at any stage in your practical nursing career.

Each year, at RPNAO, we continue to develop and implement new programs based on the feedback and requests provided by RPNs across the province.

New Grad day, our newest workshop at RPNAO, is designed specifically for new graduate practical nurses. At our first New Grad day held last year at the RPNAO office in Mississauga, we hosted 15 eager new graduates. These new graduates were able to:

  • Work with the professional practice team.
  •  Receive guidance on their resumes.
  •  Participate in a mock interview.
  • Receive an overview of our popular Career Directions program, which was developed in partnership with Donnerwheeler. This engaging and supportive tool is available for all members, and can be found on our website.

We continue to receive positive feedback from participants, including a participant who felt …

It gave me a more focused perspective and reinforced for me the need to be creative and adaptable in this competitive healthcare market which seems to constantly change. I think it is a terrific opportunity for new grads and appreciate very much the support of the RPNAO in my current future endeavors! It was a great day!” S.Horner.

When participating in the RPNAO New Grad day, you also have the chance to meet with the team at RPNAO. The team at RPNAO works consistently to provide practical nurses across the province with the assistance to help guide you in your nursing career. 

Take advantage of a uniquely tailored support workshop for practical nurses, which will guide you through succeeding in the interview process of your nursing career path.
