Canada – Research in Action Summary: Employment Integration of Nursing Graduates Evaluation of a Provincial Policy Strategy, Nursing Graduate Guarantee 2009-2010 – February 2011

“During the past decade, part-time employment in nursing rose to historic proportions. This impacted the ability to recruit and retain a full-time (FT) nursing workforce. Since 2007, researchers at the NHSRU McMaster site have been evaluating the provincial government’s stimulus package to increase FT employment for new nursing graduates in Ontario. A three-year evaluation of the Nursing Graduate Guarantee (NGG) demonstrates the effectiveness of the initiative in both increasing FT positions and integrating new graduates into the health care system (Baumann et al., 2008, 2009, 2010). The research evidence clearly indicates that stimulus funding attached to the policy impacted employment trends of new graduate nurses. In addition, financial support and the opportunity for reinvestment of funds have made it an attractive initiative for many employers. Based on these results, the NGG offers a successful model of best practice in workforce integration.”
