Nursing at Baycrest

Nursing should be about therapeutic relationships… moments of care and communication which weave new threads into our lives, and the lives of our clients.

At Baycrest, that is how nursing is — the way it should be. Whether you are a seasoned nurse or a new grad, you will find Baycrest’s philosophy of nursing reconnects you to the reason you became a nurse in the first place.

Although Baycrest evolved from the Toronto Jewish Old Folks Home, founded in 1918, its facilities now serve the broader community. Our model of client-focused care demonstrates both our respect for the elderly and our philosophy of relationships.

Baycrest has evolved into an internationally-renowned academic geriatric health sciences centre. Our nurses are empowered to make decisions, given opportunities for professional development and encouraged to realize their full scope of practice.
