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.
