Community Nursing Services
Meet with a VCHC Registered Nurse (RN) to support your health needs.
Our Registered Nurses provide a full range of community nursing and health education services and are happy to collaborate with any other health service providers such as Nurse Practitioners, Family Physicians, wellness practitioners etc.
The RNs are based in the Cook St Village Activity Centre, 380 Cook St. The RNs are available during clinic hours at the CSVAC or scheduled home visits.
Their services are covered for any holder of a BC Services Card. Co-op Membership is not required to access these services.
Explore the Practitioner Directory to find a local provider for an individual service, or work with wellness program leaders in the Co-op to create a holistic treatment plan.

Focusing on the social determinants of health, we advocate for solutions to community health challenges, inequities, and disparities.
Over the past 13 years, we have formed partnerships with organizations working to bring about positive change in community health. We collaborate with local, provincial, and national non-profit organizations, committees, and groups to identify and develop opportunities that contribute to community health and wellbeing.
