Your Opportunity:

An exciting rural nursing opportunity exists for those interested in working to their full scope of practice. As a Registered Nurse working at Wabasca Healthcare Centre, you will work not only in our 10-bed inpatient acute care environment but you will also work in our Emergency Department, allowing you the opportunity to diversity your nursing experience. Northern Alberta has a lot to offer, us included! The community of Wabasca is nestled on the shores of the North and South Wabasca Lakes, allowing for recreation for every season. In the summer months, you might enjoy biking or walking our 15 km of paved paths, softball, fishing, boating, bird watching, ATV’ing and of course swimming in the lakes or at our indoor pool for those days you want to be inside! In the summer, don’t forget to take in our long summer nights with a round of golf at our local golf course. For the winter months, you can keep up with your activities by walking or running on our indoor track or skating on the lakes. The hamlets of Wabasca, Desmarais and surrounding area with the Bigstone Band Cree Nation reserves are located approximately 300 km from St. Albert and Edmonton with a population of around 5,500. Oil, gas, and forestry are our main industries in the area. In addition to a competitive rate of pay, AHS currently has a Remote Retention Allowance in place to an annual maximum of $3,000. This allowance is non-pensionable and is payable on an hourly basis for all hours paid at the basic rate of pay.


As a Registered Nurse (RN), you will provide a wide variety of nursing services to patients, families, communities and populations, while taking necessary steps to ensure their safety and well-being. In your role, you will utilize nursing processes, through critical thinking, problem solving and decision making, as well as teach, counsel and advocate on behalf of patients and their families. You will play a leadership role in supporting an integrated and holistic approach to patient care, health promotion and maintenance. You will provide safe, quality patient and family centered care while reflecting the shared vision and values of AHS.
