Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, B.C., has a Registered Nurse Employee Education Opportunity for the Accelerated Perinatal (AWHONN) Nursing Speciality Program. If you are an experienced registered nurse and would like to move into Perinatal nursing but do not have formal education, we would love to consider you for paid in-house Perinatal training. This training would require an 18-month return of service commitment.
This in-house program uses the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) curriculum and is coordinated by the Interior Health Maternal, Newborn, Child and Youth Network. The Accelerated Perinatal Education program has three (3) components:
• Prerequisite Online Theory Modules: Total 51 hours (independent, unpaid study hours)
• Orientation and In-Person Simulations: Total 78.75 hours (10.5 days x 7.5 hours)
• Clinical Practicum Hours: Total 264 hours (20 x 11 hour shifts at tertiary site and 4 x 11 hour shifts in home community)
**Participation in Clinical Practicum and Education Opportunity is conditional upon completion of Online Theory Modules.
Shifts of work are rotating, with shift times of 07:30-19:30 and 19:30-07:30.
