Your Opportunity:

Experience a whole new way of nursing - and way of life – as a rural RN. Alberta Health Services (AHS) has an exciting opportunity for an RN to work to their full scope of practice, with patients of all ages. You may encounter farm equipment injuries, illnesses that can’t wait for the clinic, or unexpected meetings with wildlife – every day is different. The Town of McLennan, Alberta, is “Small, but with a lot of heart.” Become a part of a community, and provide essential healthcare services not only to residents of McLennan, but several outlying communities as well at the Sacred Heart Community Hospital. See patients across the continuum of care, with a wide range of health concerns. Get closer to nature without the glare of bright city lights, enjoy a front-row seat for dazzling Northern Lights displays, and indulge in all your favorite outdoor activities like hiking, biking, horseback riding, or zipping along on ATVs or snowmobiles. Resting on the shores of Kimiwan Lake, or “Rain Lake,” in Cree, McLennan is a mere 25 minutes from Winagami lake. Fishing, paddle sports, and boating beckon – even living on the prairies! AHS is a Canadian Top 100 employer, Alberta Top 75 employer, and a Top Employer for Young People and Diversity. Imagine a supportive employer, a career that fits your lifestyle, and plentiful opportunities for professional development in your field. 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. Read on for full qualifications and apply below!

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.
