Have you always dreamed of a career specializing in pediatrics, child & youth mental health, perinatal, or oncology nursing? Work and learn with us and apply to be part of the Employed Student Nurse Program at BC Children's Hospital, BC Women's Hospital, or BC Cancer!
PHSA is committed to career pathways and investing in its people. As an Employed Student Nurse working at BC Children's Hospital, BC Women's Hospital, or BC Cancer in specialized pediatric, child and youth mental health, perinatal, or oncology care settings, you will consolidate your nursing skills and gain valuable practice working as a member of an interdisciplinary health care team. This hands-on experience will prepare you for a career in either pediatric, child and youth mental health, perinatal, or oncology nursing and you may be able to use this experience as a stepping stone to acquiring a preceptorship at BCCH, BCW, or BC Cancer as part of your fourth year.
Our Employed Student Nurse (ESN) program provides a nursing employment opportunity to work in a clinical setting of up to 350 hours of hands-on experience with pay. These hours will help you consolidate your theory and clinical skills, build on your nursing practice, and participate as a team member. In many cases, you can also apply your earned seniority toward your first RN/RPN job with us.
