Temporary opportunities for nurses to support COVID response

As British Columbia moves forward with its COVID response, the province is looking to hire hundreds of staff to help support the provision of public health support, including contact tracing and immunizations through the fall and winter.

These positions will allow you to put your valuable skills and experience to work to further our COVID efforts, and will help support the Province during our most critical time.

  • These will be temporary positions through your regional health authority or the Provincial Health Services Authority.
  • They are expected to be approximately 7-8 months in duration, running from August/September 2020 to the end of March 2021.
  • At this time, it is expected that the services provided will include contact tracing, immunizations, education and/or providing test results. Work may be a combination of in-person and virtual /remote work, depending on the region and support required.

Who can apply

  • Current non-practicing licensed registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs) who are in good standing and meet the practice hours requirement.
  • Former B.C. RN, LPN and RPN registrants who are in good standing and meet the practice hours requirement.
