Perioperative Nurses

 Island Health is actively seeking Perioperative Nurses in the Comox Valley.

Island Health is looking for patient-focused and compassionate nurses to join their team to provide care to patients in the Operat- ing Rooms at Comox Valley Hospital.

Nestled between the mountains and ocean on central Vancouver Island, the Comox Valley is an ideal location for outdoor enthusi- asts. It is one of the few places you can golf and ski in the same day, explore the endless hiking/mountain biking trails or embark on a kayak adventure.

The Comox Valley comprises three unique communities – Cour- tenay, Comox and Cumberland. Daily WestJet flights make this region easily accessible. The region is growing rapidly due to hous- ing being more affordable than bigger urban centres and friendly neighbourhoods that are ideal for raising a family.

The Comox Valley Hospital opened its doors in October 2017. The state-of-the-art hospital has six operating rooms and two endos- copy suites. Services include orthopedics, general surgery, ENT, gynecology, obstetrics, urology and dental.

Apply today and become part of a nursing team dedicated to the highest quality of patient care.

Relocation assistance may be available.

The Operating Room is often overlooked as an area to specialize in, however, there is nowhere else at this point in my career I would consider working. The ability to devote one hundred percent of my attention and care to one patient at a time is invaluable.

I may be biased, but my colleagues are the best anyone could ask for. We are likeminded with patients being our number one priority. Everyone is driven to do their best and to support one another. We work extremely hard but have fun while doing so.

Outside of work I can be found on my mountain bike in the trails, surrounded by lush green forests, views of the mountains and the ocean. An epic bike ride can be followed up with a beverage from one of our various local restaurants.

Although the Comox Valley may be considered a small town compared to oth- er areas on Vancouver Island, we have a variety of delectable restaurants and amenities to enjoy. An average day in the Valley can easily include activities in the ocean, mountains, lakes and rivers. I feel very fortunate to live and work in the beautiful Comox Valley.
