EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES:

 

Two part time Registered Nurses (RNs) – Victoria, BC

RN Job Posting (Click to view and please share widely!)

The Victoria Health Co-op is seeking two part-time RNs to work in community settings.  The focus of these positions will be on education about avoiding and managing the risks of COVID-19 and other infections as an individual and within the community.  We anticipate some hands-on tasks such as changing dressings, treating and dressing very minor injuries or sores.  We anticipate that both positions will be part-time with each RN working in one facility.  One will focus on a men’s residence, the other on a community organization with many senior members.

 

Part-time or Full-time Nurse-Practitioner (NPs) – Victoria, BC

NP Job Posting (Click to view and please share widely!)

Are you an experienced Nurse Practitioner? We are in progress with securing clinic space to support a full-time or 2 part-time NPs. Apply to join our team! 

Our aim is to build a team, fitting in with YOUR full- or part-time schedule, and to meet the on-going needs of between 450-800 residents, from infants to seniors, who have on-going or episodic need for care.

 

Adapting to COVID-19 and beyond

No-Touch Wellbeing sessions

Twice monthly we hold Zoom meetings with 3 to 5 presentations by members and friends of the Vic Health Co-op and the Wellness Society describing some aspect of their lives that gives them happiness.  These have included art, focus on internal joy, volunteering, work, learning …..  No Charge, and open to all, not only VHC members.

 

In person No-Touch Wellbeing sessions

 

In September we plan to get back to our pre-COVID plan of hosting monthly in-person sessions.  These will serve VHC and Cook Street Activity Centre members who prefer this format to Zoom, and will enable us to demonstrate some of the simple exercises and wellness techniques that were not easy on Zoom.  We will hope for donations to cover the room rental each month.

 

Infection Prevention sessions

 

We are planning to offer group and individual sessions on how to stay infection free into the future, and how to avoid accidentally passing an infection to others.  This will be useful related to COVID-19 and the coming ‘flu season.
