Wetaskiwin has an exciting opportunity for a Registered Nurse on their maternity unit! Wetaskiwin labor and delivery is a busy rural delivery site with approximately 400 deliveries per year and 1500 outpatients. As a combined L&D/ post-partum unit, your experience as a rural maternity nurse will be invaluable to the team. You will be providing support in the operating room during cesarean sections and other procedures.

Speak to the hiring manager who will confirm if, as the successful candidate in this position, you will be restricted to work at only one LTC/DLS site in Alberta.
As a Registered Nurse (RN), you will provide a wide variety of nursing services to patients, families, communities and populations, while taking necessary steps to ensure their safety and well-being. In your role, you will utilize nursing processes, through critical thinking, problem solving and decision making, as well as teach, counsel and advocate on behalf of patients and their families. You will play a leadership role in supporting an integrated and holistic approach to patient care, health promotion and maintenance. You will provide safe, quality patient and family centered care while reflecting the shared vision and values of AHS.
