Volunteer (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 December 2013
As a International educated nurse a typical day at work in Providence healthcare gives me an idea how the health system in Canada works. It gives me the feeling of excitement since I came there as a volunteer giving meal assistance to the residence during their meals.
I learned how to appreciate my field, Nursing. I was assigned to Alzheimer's patients and I had the opportunity not only to apply the correct intervention in certain situations but learn to appreciate life most of all.
The management I worked with gives me the room to grow and show me how the system works. I enjoy their company for they also shared their experiences.
Like the management, co-workers gave you the room to gain confidence and patience in team-building environment.
First day were always been the hardest part of the job since your start to create a system to prioritize things according to their needs.
Being in a team-building environment made me realized that this job are more enjoyable and made me feel at home.

Great place to work. Employees opinions are valued. Leaders work along side you and care. They want to do what is right and not just do what has been done for 20 years because that is the way it is. This organization places value on those working here, the community it serves and wants to make it a better place to work
It was very good experience in friendly and educative environment.
Student Nurse (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 August 2016
Our practice was very good organized and it gave me a lot of new skills and experience. Staff nurses were very helpful and friendly. Feedback from our clinical instructor was constructive and positive. We were working on the floor and had conference after that. It was discussions of all what we did during the day plus some new knowledge which we obtained from books, articles, internet research. Everything was produstive and very good for educational process. Atmosphera in the facility is always important for students' pratice. Most important that we got feeling that we belong there yet we can have help when it needed. This was my very good clinical practice in one of the best hospitals of Toronto.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 20 May 2016
I had a horrible experience with this company. I was bullied by management to the point of being called an idiot. Many employees on my unit were scared of management. I found that management was not professional.
Coworkers were great, and supportive. The nurses, doctors and other workers give 110% every day.
