Cariboo Memorial Hospital in Williams Lake has a Registered Nurse Employee Education Opportunity for the Perinatal (AWHONN) Nursing Speciality Program.
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 Perinatal Education program has three (3) components:
• Online Theory Modules: Total 127.5 hours for module completion (unpaid study 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.
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 (Perinatal) 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.
