  • Description
    [Excerpt from authors] This report focuses on the supply and employment of nursing graduates in Ontario and their absorption into the workforce over the two-year period from 2003/4 to 2004/5. It begins with a review of labour market trends in the health care sector and discusses nursing supply, mobility, and cross-border migration in the recent past. The major repositories of data on nurse education are identified and an overview of the entry of new nurses into the workforce is provided. Based on a survey of new graduands, a profile of new nurses is presented. In addition, the employment market for newly graduated nurses is compared across Canada and provincial strategies for hiring new graduates are reviewed.
