Cariboo Memorial Hospital (CMH) is seeking casual perinatal nurses to join our supportive nursing staff in Williams Lake. At CMH, our Perinatal Nurses handle a combined role and provide the full range of perinatal services, which give them the opportunity to develop in all areas of the Perinatal Specialty.
This is a Relief Full Time opportunity until approximately December 31, 2023 (or until the return of the incumbent) with shift times rotating 07:30 to 19:30 and 19:30 to 07:30.
This is an opportunity to work with three active OBGYNs and two midwives in a community with a young population where we average one delivery per day with a Level 1b Nursery. We have moderate to high risk clientele and are a mini referral centre for sites such as Bella Coola and 100 Mile House. We are a small but mighty unit that provides excellent care and services to our patients including walking epidurals and recovering C-sections with moms and babies together by maternity staff on the maternity unit. Our nurses enjoy working in a team environment with well-established working relationships and an engaged group of physicians who support our cohesive group dynamic.
We are committed to mentoring and coaching each other and enjoy supporting new grads on to our unit. We have a laid back, casual but professional atmosphere where the doctors are our teammates, and in the beautiful Cariboo Region, you are able to go for hiking, fishing and mountain biking, all at the end of your work day.

The growing community of Williams Lake is located amidst sparkling lakes and rolling ranch land in the heart of the Cariboo Chilcotin Region of British Columbia. As the largest city in the area, it serves as a business, industrial and service hub for outlying communities and provides employment opportunities in the forestry, mining, agriculture and tourism sectors. Home to the famous Williams Lake Stampede, this former “Cowtown” has grown into a vibrant city that offers its residents a comfortable blend of urban living and western charm. Horseback riding, mountain biking, river rafting, fishing and camping are popular recreational pursuits in the area.
We are a hard working and welcoming team. CMH is truly a great place to work! Apply today!
