The Clinical Scholar program is a new initiative from the Ministry of Health to support newly graduated Registered Nurses (RNs) and Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) in their transition into the workforce. The Clinical Nurse Scholar will also support RNs and RPNs that are newly transferred or hired in a new clinical setting. The Clinical Scholar is an experienced nurse with frontline experience who demonstrates exceptional clinical experience, with outstanding communication skills and experience teaching clinical learners. The Nurse Clinical Scholar provides mentorship support and leadership to nursing practice and education initiatives across the organization. In addition, the Nurse Clinical Scholar in collaboration with the leadership team will promote continuous learning, professional development, continuous quality improvement, and service excellence through role modeling, coaching, and mentoring, in a direct hands-on approach, and effectively engage staff to create and support an interprofessional environment that promotes learning, inquiry, innovation, accountability, collaboration, team building and professionalism.
As a Clinical Scholar, you would be responsible for providing mentorship to RNs and RPNs and supporting their nursing practice and integration into the clinical areas in accordance with organizational and professional standards, and in collaboration with clinical teams.
