Registered Nurse (RN) - BC Cancer - Victoria

Registered Nurse (RN)

BC Cancer

Victoria

 

 

 

You are a Registered Nurse with experience and/or interest in oncology care. Known as a highly collaborative and compassionate team member, you put patients first in your approach to everything you do. BC Cancer is the place for you: our Victoria centre is implementing a team-based model of care that will put our BC Cancer patients at the heart of our health care system. We’re hiring RNs to support this new model and to join us on our mission to continually improve patient care, experience, and outcomes in meaningful ways.

 

Work to your full scope of practice in our new team-based model of care

 

“Team-based care will provide a single contact person for patients supporting access to care and patient navigation. This allows for health care providers to provide cancer care rather than just deliver cancer treatment. This will improve the patient connection with supportive health care services as needed, patient and family counselling, dietitians, pain and symptom management." – Dr. Lefresne, BC Cancer

 

 

What you’ll do

  • Provide direct patient oncology care: assess patients including review of patient and family history; develop and implement nursing care plans specific to the patient needs considering psychosocial, cultural, ethnic contexts; deliver treatment following prescribed protocols.
  • Collaborate with patients, family and team members to develop, assess, and modify patient treatment/care plans; support patients in the interpretation of their care plans.
  • Administer medications, injections, blood products and IV fluids; monitor patient reactions to treatment and changes in physical or mental status; consult a physician as required.
  • Conduct and document patient information and health care history, nursing assessments, telephone communications, symptom and side effect management, patient and family education and care evaluations.
  • Admit, transfer or discharge patients according to BC Cancer policies and Centre directives.
  • Refer patients to other health care professionals and programs in the agency and in the community health services as required.

 

What you bring

  • Graduation from an approved School of Nursing.
  • Current practicing registration as an RN with the British Columbia College of Nurses and Midwives (BCCNM).
  • Current CPR (Level C) certification.
  • One (1) year of recent related experience or an equivalent combination of education, training and experience.

You have:

  • Awareness of and commitment to learning and understanding the Truth & Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action (2015), In Plain Sight Report (2020), BC's Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (2019), and other related reports.
  • Commitment to upholding the shared responsibility of creating lasting and meaningful reconciliation in Canada as per TRC (2015) and BC's Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (2019).
  • Knowledge of social, economic, political and historical realities impacting indigenous communities and familiarity with Indigenous Cultural Safety and anti-racism and accompanying reports (BC DRIPA, TRC, etc.).

PHSA and BC Cancer are committed to employment equity, encouraging all qualified individuals to apply. We recognize that our ability to provide the best care for our diverse patient populations relies on a rich diversity of skills, knowledge, background and experience, and value a safe, inclusive and welcoming environment.

 


Reconciliation is an ongoing process and a shared responsibility for all of us. The BC Governments’ unanimous passage of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act was a significant step forward in this journey—one that all health authorities are expected to support as we work in cooperation with Indigenous Peoples to establish a clear and sustainable path to lasting reconciliation. True reconciliation will take time and ongoing commitment to work with Indigenous Peoples as they move toward self-determination. Guiding these efforts Crown agencies must remain focused on creating opportunities that implement the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Mandate.
