May 8-14, 2017 is National Nursing Week and across Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) nurses are making immense contributions to the health and well-being of our clients, residents and patients as well as the health care system as a whole. Every day, nurses are impacting clients throughout their lifespan, in diverse practice settings. From remote urgent care to in-home palliative care, vaccination and screening for children, critical care for trauma patients, harm reduction and prevention of overdose, and maternity care – VCH nurses are with clients through their life experiences, providing excellent professional care!
Vancouver Coastal Health employs nearly 7,000 nurses working in acute, residential and community based settings in Vancouver, Richmond, the North Shore and Coast Garibaldi, Sea-to-Sky, Sunshine Coast, Powell River, Bella Bella and Bella Coola.
