Health authority ensures employment for Vancouver Island nursing graduates

March 23, 2012

To help meet the demand for skilled nurses, the Vancouver Island Health Authority announced last week it is offering employment to all graduates of Vancouver Island registered nursing programs in 2012-13. Graduating registered nurses from North Island College, the University of Victoria, Vancouver Island University, and registered psychiatric nurses from Stenberg College will be offered temporary full-time positions in a wide range of locations and practice settings that need additional support. The health authority says the graduates' help will reinforce the work of its dedicated nursing staff and ensure experienced nurses are in place to move into the roles of retiring nurses.
