About the Opportunity

Northern Health is seeking a highly motivated Critical Care Nurse to join our team in Fort St. John, BC, on a full-time basis. As our new Critical Care Nurse, you will work to provide care to patients of all ages with a wide variety of symptoms within an uncontrolled environment, while assessing patient needs and prioritizing care requirements.

For a limited time, critical care trained nurses who relocate to some of B.C.’s most beautiful northern communities will receive a bonus of $20,000 through the Northern Rural Critical Care Incentive program.

The Northern Rural Critical Care Incentive position is dependent on a two-year return of service. Should a recipient of the Northern Rural Critical Care incentive voluntarily leave NH during the two-year return of service agreement, they will be required to refund a portion of the incentive at a prorated rate (calculated based on 1/24th of the total allowance for each month of the two-year return of service not yet served).
