We need your help in addressing urgent staffing needs in health facilities

Several long-term care facilities and hospitals are facing urgent staffing needs due to outbreaks, staff in isolation and expanded needs through this second wave of COVID-19 in Ontario. The needs have exacerbated during the holiday season and they are not expected to diminish during the first few months of 2021.

RNAO reminds both employers and healthcare workers who have the ability to offer their availability at this urgent time of RNCareers, the largest employment website in Ontario for NPs, RNs, RPNs, PSWs and other health professionals. RNCareers is a 24x7 service.

The service is free for jobseekers and you may indicate in your posting your availability, location, full time or part time, and other details. We encourage health-care workers who are available to make yourselves available at this time of extreme need. All help is important – from those able to contribute a few hours a week during the next month to those seeking permanent full time work. If you are available, please do not delay posting your availability as many employers are in desperate need and hiring right through the holiday season.

Employers can get immediate access to postings from jobseekers, search the database according to your specific needs, and get notifications about new postings meeting your criteria. There are currently more than 11,000 open jobseekers.

It is up to jobseekers and employers to contact one the other when they have identified a potential match. All postings for both employers and jobseekers have contact information.

Jobseekers can access RNCareers here. Employers can access RNCareers here.
