​The FNHA is hiring Registered Nurses for Nursing Station and Health Centre positions in remote and isolated First Nations communities in BC.​​​​

 
 

 

​Nursing Stations

Community Health Nurses (CHNs) work in an expanded scope of practice to provide primary care, public health, health promotion and emergency care for First Nations individuals, families and communities, including after hours on-call care. Post-secondary training and education allows CHNs to obtain a designated Remote Certification, RN(c) through the College of Registered Nurses of British Columbia (CRNBC). 

The FNHA currently has eight nursing sta­tions staffed by two to four CHNs in loca­tions ranging from coastal to northern com­munities. Nursing stations are comprised of full-time, part-time and casual positions.

Current Locations Include:

Anahim Lake, Fort Ware, Tsay Keh Dene, Hartley Bay, Port Simpson, Kitkatla, Klemtu, and Telegraph Creek.

Their practice is grounded in health promotion and disease prevention and aims to build the capacity of individual, family and community wellness.

CHNs in this setting are not on call and do not provide emergency services.​
