Position Summary

Put your Perinatal Nursing skills into full motion and join the passionate and welcoming nursing staff at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, in the beautiful community of Trail. KBRH is looking for a self-directed, motivated and reliable nurse who wants to work alongside a strong team to expand their nursing practice and skills set. We support ongoing cross training between maternity, peds and nursery as we are a combined unit.

We incorporate a Family Obstetrics Clinic within our department and our supportive team of physicians, nurses and midwife provide prenatal support to expectant Mom’s throughout their pregnancy so that when they are ready to deliver, we have an established relationship with them and they are familiar with our department and facility. After our new Mom’s leave our facility, we offer outpatient support for them and their babies in collaboration with Public Health.

We have an active maternity unit where our nurses cover labour & delivery, postpartum and nursery caring for neonates greater than or equal to 34 weeks gestation. We see about 250 deliveries a year in our maternity/pediatric ward and our nurses work 12 hour shifts with a bonus of optional on-call shifts available at overtime rates.

This is a Casual opportunity. Casual means there are no guaranteed hours and work requirements may vary from 0 - 37.5 hours per week. Casual employment includes: short-notice, on-call availability; workload coverage during a temporary absence; and/or providing relief coverage in a specific position. Once hired into a casual role, employees are eligible to apply for internal postings including permanent part-time or full time positions. There are many opportunities with Interior Health that begin with casual positions and lead to regular employment.

We invite applicants to self-identify as First Nation, Métis or Inuit within cover letters and/or resumes.
Interior Health now offers assistance from an Aboriginal Employment Advisor. If you self-identify as Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) and if you would like assistance with the application process, job readiness, interview readiness or tips for resume and cover letter writing, send your question via email to AboriginalEmployment@interiorhealth.ca to be redirected to the Employment Advisor.
