Extended scope and experience as an RPN

Extended surgical/trauma scope of practice for an RPN. Same scope of practice as RN with same pay scale as RPN in LTC. There is no such thing as a stable patient. It does give an RPN an opportunity to experience skills that would challenge any nurse.

Work at another hospital if you can

Disconnect between business majors in management and front line healthcare workers leads to significant loss in productivity and strained relations. Disgruntled staff.


You get paid decently as it is public sector

Ok place to work

Depends where you’re working/what you’re doing. An okay place to work. For the most part people are nice. The cafeteria is really good. Employee parking is expensive but you can find street parking.

Great Place To Work

All the staff are very friendly, and understanding. It is a home feeling environment, it’s not just co workers, it’s family. If your debating on where to apply, the Barton Bean is definitely the place!

Good workplace.

Busy days, but well managed. Good team. Good work environment. The days can be very busy, but the team works well together and helps each other. Do not like the 2s and 3s schedule.

Great place to work

I enjoyed my time here. Unfortunately I moved and the commute was too long and my finished school (so I was on to different learning opportunities to expand).

Overall stable company to work for

BIg cooperation. Good learning opportunities, however nurses are understaffed and not prioritized - however big developments and changes are happening which may or may not lead to even more shortages due to all the money being spent on new updates for recently built hospitals instead of staffing crisis.

A place to live and save lives

Hamilton General is a place to start a real professional life. You will experience busy shifts, you will see different procedures, you have the chance to meet medical staff from all over the world. Salary is reasonable. Management is doing a good job in there. All employees and students are very friendly and supportive. We sometimes have fun together in places out of the hospital. All in all, I suggest you apply for it!


Highly Scientific Place

Great first Nursing job

Excellent first Nursing job. Enjoyed working here, learned a lot, but found shift work very challenging. Worked for 3 years on Orthopedics. Orthopedics can be a heavy floor, but found the staff excellent when I was a new grad.

Very supporting and friendly

As a nursing student I had many people supporting me through my learning in the acute medicine unit; It is truly a unit that works as a team to take care of patients, and nurses are very friendly.

Great learning experience on the unit

I have had the privilege to work with the most committed and hardworking nurses in the field. They are very approachable and supportive to new nurses! I have had many learning experiences on the unit. It was a great environment for me to improve myself as a nurse and grow as a new nurse.

Staff members are very pleasant to work with.

I consider myself lucky for being able to work in Hamilton General Hospital. My experience there taught me the importance of time management – my preceptor didn’t pull any punches, and was extremely deadline-driven. Staff members' no-nonsense attitude pushed me to work harder, and manage my case loads way more efficiently. I worked there as a rehabilitation nurse responsible for the medication preparation and administration to patients with acquired brain injuries. I participated in round table discussions on best treatment practice and helped craft care plans for specific patients. Administration work included admitting and discharging patients, processing orders and transcribing medications. I collaborated with and demonstrated leadership qualities when working within an inter-professional team. The hardest part of the job was taking care of myself while taking care of others. Getting enough sleep and eating healthy food was challenging especially when it gets busy on the floor. The most enjoyable part of of the job was seeing patient from being ill to being well and working with awesome, fun and caring staff members.
