Registered Nurse (RN/RPN) | Mental Health and Substance Use

Position Summary

Is Mental Health Nursing your passion? We have a relief part time (0.87 FTE) Mental Health Nurse (RN/RPN) opportunity available with our amazing team at Vernon Jubilee Hospital- Psychiatry unit.

What will you work on?

The VJH Mental Health team utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to provide care to psychiatric patients. The duties include treatment, one-on-one and group counselling, administering medications, creating care plans, discharge planning and working with community organizations. Under a Person Centered Care model and incorporated Tidal Model philosophy that is “recovery focused and wellness oriented,” the team is enabled to increase patient participation and satisfaction as it facilitates more direct contact with nurses (or the treatment team) while simultaneously increasing the nurse’s capacity to work with the patient as opposed to supervising them. The team strives to be an integrated service to clients, encourages staff to challenge themselves, and supports educational opportunities within the hospital and community settings.

If you are an experienced Mental Health Nurse with a positive attitude who thrives in a fast-paced environment working with patients with concurrent mental health and substance use challenges, we have the career for you.

Shifts are rotating days, evenings and nights: 0700:00 to 19:00, 19:00 to 07:00 hours.
