The patients and families make the job
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON3 August 2017
Great place to learn new skills as an RN. Once you reach a certain level there is not much opportunity for RNs for advanced positions. Hard to get a full-time position and must pass a bilingualism test before hiring.
Pros
Unionized environment
Cons
Mandatory bilingualism
