Give Grad Nurses A Chance

388 Signatures Goal: 2,000

This petition is attempting to shine a light on the graduate nurse program shortage. While many student nurses are finishing their degrees there is a large portion of those left without a graduate program. Graduate programs are designed to safely transition nurses from university to the workforce. Most health care facilities will not hire nurses without experience and to obtain that experience nurses need graduate programs. In addition, one year after completing their course students are no longer eligible for graduate programs, so with only two hospitals having additional application processes for mid year graduate programs, obtaining a graduate placement is nearly impossible for a substantial number of new nurses.

    There are too many training providers pumping out EN and RN nurses. When I graduated, there were 23 positions available at one hospital for new grads and over 400 applications. There will continue to be a shortage of nurses unless new grads get training and employed in the workforce.

    Without a grad there is so little chance of any job

    More graduate positions need to be made, if there is a shortage of nurses why can't more places be offered?!
