Registered Nurse - Acute Care/ER Obstetrics

Nursing - Nurse/Psych Nurse
ALB00155146 Requisition #

Your Opportunity:

Located in the heart of Alberta's rolling woodlands, Edson is only two hours from Edmonton and an hour and half to Jasper National Park. It's a place where you can bike, climb, camp, fish or hike in summer and ski, board, snowshoe and dogsled in winter - all things we Canadians love to do in the great outdoors. Come enjoy Hornbeck cross-country ski area which offers 37 km of groomed trails, or visit the Kinsmen Spray Park as a way to cool the kids off on a hot summer day. If you enjoy living in a small town with big city advantages and work-life balance, this is the opportunity for you. Edson Health Care Centre is a brand new state of the art hospital, built in 2016. We have a robust obstetrical program and our OR program will be expanding with the Northern Surgical Initiative. This position will give you an incredible opportunity to work in many different areas of an Acute Care hospital, ER, OR, Recovery Room, and Obstetrics. We also have a 4 bed dialysis pod located within the facility. We would love for you to come join our amazing team here in Edson! New Graduates welcome to apply. Please note, this facility provides Long Term Care (LTC) or Designated Supportive Living (DSL) services and by Order of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, many AHS employees are restricted to work only at a single LTC/DSL site for the remainder of the pandemic. Speak to the hiring manager who will confirm if, as the successful candidate in this position, you will be restricted to work at only one LTC/DLS site in Alberta.


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.
