We are looking for an experienced Registered Nurse to fill an Emergency / Intensive Care Nurse TRAINEE position we have within our team at Cariboo Memorial Hospital. If you are an experienced nurse and would like to move into the emergency/critical care field but do not have formal education, we would love to consider you for paid in-house emergency training. This training would require an 18-month return of service commitment.
This in-house program uses the American Association of Critical Care Nurses (ACCN) and the Emergency Nursing Orientation (ENO) curriculum coordinated by the Interior Health Critical Care and Emergency Network.
The training is scheduled to commence in January 2023. ECCO/ REDEP has four (4) Program components to be completed:
• On-Line Theory Case Based Modules (Assigned ECCO and ENO Modules)
• Clinical Hours (Focused Study at Beside): 100 hours
• Clinical Lab Hours: 40 hours
• Consolidated Preceptorship Hours: 292.50 hours
As per the NBA Article 35.03, upon successful completion of the education program, an employee must return to, or post into a regular position in the area of nursing applicable to the education (Critical Care/Emergency) for a minimum of 18 months. If no regular position is available, the employer will create a regular relief line equivalent to the employee's original FTE. For casual employees, FTE will be determined on number of hours in previous year or 0.5 FTE whichever is greater. Employee will work in a relief line until the employee can secure regular employment.
