Facility :CARIBOO MEMORIAL HOSPITAL
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 an opportunity to work with three active OBGYNs (soon to be 4) 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.
This is a Casual opportunity. Casual means hours are not guaranteed and may vary and shifts may be at short notice. Casual employees are eligible to apply for internal postings including permanent and temporary positions. There are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual employment and lead to regular employment.
Shifts are days and nights and shift times are 07:30 to 19:30 and 19:30 to 07:30.
