Beautiful British Columbia
We've been waiting for you!

Nurse Vancouver is a unique collaboration of Health Authorities in British Columbia who have come together to recruit to fill nursing vacancies across Greater Vancouver.

We invite you to learn more about our exciting nursing opportunities, living and working in British Columbia, and our application process through this interactive website.
