Exciting opportunity for adventurous nurses

Where will I work?

A backdrop of the majestic coastal mountain range frames a myriad of bike and cross-country skiing trails and sandy beaches.

The peninsula attracts people looking for a friendly, more relaxed lifestyle. Whether you settle in a town centre or choose a rural setting, you're always close to a wonderful array of social, cultural and recreational activities. This popular area within the Vancouver, Coast & Mountains region is accessible by a scenic 40-minute BC Ferries ride from Horseshoe Bay to Gibsons.
