Accepting applications from Internationally Educated Nurses!

Are you an Internationally Educated nurse who is registered or in the process of becoming registered with the CNO to practice as Registered Nurse in Ontario. You may be eligible to join Lakeridge through Health Force Ontario’s Temporary Class Employment Supports Program (TCES).

Additional to the TCES we offer a Career Pathway Program for Internationally Educated Nurses through the Supervised Practice Experience Partnership (SPEP) the helps participants to meet the CNO Evidence of Practice & Language Proficiency requirements.
We have openings across multiple units for Registered Nurses to join our team. We have programs to support new graduates, internationally educated nurses, students, early career nurses and nurses with experience across our hospitals in Ajax Pickering, Whitby, Oshawa, Bowmanville and Port Perry.

Who We Are

The care we provide at Lakeridge Health is shaped by our vision: One System, Best Health. With that our values are to Improve Population Health, Create an integrated System of Health, Commitment to Individual Health Care and Be the Workplace of Choice. Joining our team means embracing this vision and focusing on improving the overall health and wellness of the people in our region and making a difference in the lives of the hundreds of thousands of patients we serve every year.

Lakeridge Health is the largest health provider in the Durham Region, with five hospitals, four emergency departments, three critical care and labour and delivery units, a long term care home and a full range of medical, surgical, mental health, stroke, cardiac, renal and others.

Being a workplace of choice is one of our four strategic directions. We want to be a place where the best people want to start, grow, and finish their careers in health care. And we’re focused on fostering an environment that’s inclusive, compassionate, innovative, and joyful, and celebrates teams and teamwork.

If you’re interested in making a profound and positive difference at one of Ontario’s leading hospital networks, we’d like to hear from you.

What you’ll do:

RNs have a unique role in promoting health and preventing illness. As an RN at Lakeridge Health you play an integral part in helping our community attain and maintain the highest level of health possible. As an RN, no day is the same and you will be responsible for providing comprehensive care autonomously to patients – some with predictable outcomes and others with unpredictable outcomes, who may or may not be clinically stable.

This can be challenging, but it is also rewarding. At Lakeridge Health, you will have the support you need from our team of Charge Nurses, Clinical Managers, and Professional Practice members to be confident and capable in your ability to provide exceptional care.

If you are ready to contribute to Lakeridge Health and achieving our vision of One System Best Health, we want to hear from you!
