  Toronto Rehabilitation Institute

As Canada’s largest academic hospital specializing in adult rehabilitation, complex continuing care and long-term care, Toronto Rehab helps those who experience disabling injury or illness to rebuild their lives. As a fully affiliated and specialized teaching hospital of the University of Toronto, we strive to advance the practice of rehabilitation science by generating new knowledge, putting it into practice and sharing our discoveries with others. Critical to our success is our team of outstanding health-care professionals, including 640 nurses, who use their knowledge, expertise, skills and experience to provide individualized care to the more than 15,000 patients we see each year.
Working at six different Toronto Rehab sites, nurses deliver inpatient and outpatient care through seven core clinical programs: Cardiac Rehab, Complex Continuing Care, Geriatric Rehab, Musculoskeletal Rehab, Neuro Rehab, Spinal Cord Rehab and Long-Term Care. Nurses enjoy a variety of professional challenges working with diverse patient populations, including those suffering from stroke, acquired brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and cognitive disabilities, among others.

Valuing the Sanctity of the Nurse- Patient Therapeutic Relationship

Nurses have the unique opportunity to work in a low-tech, high-touch health-care environment in which they develop close bonds of trust with their patients. Providing hands-on support and care, nurses work with clients on a long-term basis to enable their progression to greater wellness and independence. As effective communicators and valued members of the rehab team, nurses collaborate with all members of the inter-professional health-care team to develop highly tailored treatment plans for each patient. Nurses receive support from nursing and inter-professional Advanced Practice Leaders and Clinical Nurse Educators who specialize in rehabilitation nursing care.

Maximize Your Professional Development

Upon completion of a two-to three week clinical and corporate orientation, including a program-specific orientation with an experienced nurse preceptor, new nurses will discover many opportunities to enhance their practice. Through our tuition support program, nurses may access up to $3,000 in annual financial support to complete off-site courses, diplomas and degrees related to their field of practice. In addition to financial support for nurses who successfully achieve specialty certification with the Canadian Nurses’ Association, we also offer two scholarships for nurses who pursue undergraduate or graduate education in nursing.
Further building on our commitment to continuous professional development, Toronto Rehab offers a number of on-site, fully funded bridging programs, including one with Ryerson University, to help RNs complete their baccalaureate education, and one with George Brown College for RPNs to complete their diploma education. Nurses may engage in a number of opportunities to expand their clinical and professional leadership roles by participating in a variety of unit or program-based change and quality initiatives aimed at enhancing excellence in rehabilitation nursing and patient care.

Be a Key Contributor to Best Practice

Nurses play a critical role in mentoring the next generation of nurses by acting as preceptors to the hundreds of nursing students who complete placements here each year, from schools such as the University of Toronto, Ryerson University and George Brown College. We prepare nurses for their role as preceptors by providing preceptorship training, and recognize their efforts through our annual Excellence in Education awards.
At Toronto Rehab, we have an active Nursing Professional Affairs Committee that focuses on the advancement of professional nursing practice in rehabilitation.

 Nurses also have ongoing opportunities to provide their input on professional practice through corporate committees and projects.  Furthermore they have the opportunity to participate in research projects and are supported to attend and/or present at conferences and workshops.

Work and Play in Toronto

Nurses at Toronto Rehab work in a progressive academic environment that is at the forefront of rehabilitation health care in Canada. They enjoy strong relationships with their co-workers and have opportunities to participate in social events, such as staff barbecues and trips to comedy clubs. 

They’ll also be able to take advantage of the wealth of cultural and natural attractions that come with living in Toronto, the largest city in Canada. Cultural museums, premier theatre, fine restaurants, boutique shopping, professional sports and plenty of beautiful green space are just some of the highlights of this lively, urban waterfront city.
