We are seeking reliable and motivated Practical Nurses to join our passionate, energetic care teams in beautiful Merritt and Logan Lake, B.C. Our care team members exemplify a person-centered philosophy designed to support peoples’ choices, help people function at their highest level, and provide the best quality of life possible.
As the Licensed Practical Nurse, you will work in collaboration with the multidisciplinary team performing assessments and planning, implementing and providing personal and nursing care to patients. You will also administer oral, subcutaneous and intramuscular medications in accordance with pharmaceutical and organizational policies and procedures. The scope or extent of the skills that the LPN performs varies according to the predictability of the outcome for a given client population.

These are Casual opportunities. Casual means hours are not guaranteed and may vary, and shifts may be at short notice. Casual employees are eligible to apply for internal postings including permanent and temporary positions. If your goal is a regular line, there are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual employment and lead to a long career in a regular position so this is a great place to start. Or if you just want to keep a flexible schedule while picking up lots of hours, one of these positions may be right for you too!
We hire LPNs to work in our long-term care facilities, on our home supports and home health teams, and of course in our hospitals as well! If you’re interested in working in any of these roles with Interior Health, apply today and we will be in touch directly to discuss current opportunities that fit best for you!
