Position Summary

Interior Health is seeking applicants for an exciting new opportunity as a Health Care Support Worker! If you are interested in an opportunity to provide patient-centred care but do not currently hold BC Care Aide Registration, then this opportunity may be for you!

This is a FULLY funded training pathway toward becoming a Health Care Assistant through an accredited post-secondary Health Care Assistant program. Not only is the tuition fully funded but you receive a wage while you go to school!

Successful candidates must:
• Meet all school admission criteria of the HCA program
• Successfully complete the program
• Apply for and accept any vacant opportunities at their home site (one year return of service is required upon successfully completing the program in recognition of the educational investment)

Training format is typically full-time education with short periods of work until graduation. Applicants are hired to start employment as a Health Care Support Worker and will remain in this role until successfully completing their Health Care Assistant training program at a partnering post-secondary institution. The modular training program will be delivered over the course of 12-18 months. Education start dates at the post-secondary institutions will vary depending on location but Health Care Support Workers are able to begin work up to 6 months prior to the education start date.

The Health Care Support Worker will work under the direction of a Registered Nurse or another regulated healthcare professional, performing a variety of non-direct and/or non-clinical healthcare supports in accordance with the established care plan and safety requirements.
