Decrease FontIncrease FontPrintPrint

​Entry-level registered nurses are employed in diverse practice environments (i.e. hospital, community, home, clinic, residential facilities) that range from large urban to remote rural settings.

Interior Health creates and maintains practice environments that support new graduate registered nurses in providing safe, ethical, and quality health care.  Supportive practice environments assist the new graduate nurse in the consolidation of entry-level registered nurse practice and the further development of competence to provide consistently safe, competent and ethical nursing care in situations of increased complexity.

Recruitment process 2018

Applications will be accepted February 1-15, 2018 for spring 2018 new graduate nurses. One new graduate nurse job posting will be posted.  To apply for a new graduate nurse position, ensure you do the following:
