Position Summary
We are hiring a permanent part time (0.8 FTE) Long-term Care Coordinator to join our team at Ashcroft Hospital & Community Health Care Centre. We’re seeking nurses with long-term experience and strong leadership skills to join our team.

Ashcroft and Cache Creek are small communities with one of the best climates in BC, having mild winters and warm summers with little precipitation. The mountains are only a few miles away. Skiing, hiking, fishing, swimming, and biking opportunities are within easy drives. While the health site is located in and named after the Ashcroft community (population 1,800), the Village of Cache Creek (population 1,200) is 10 km away. The site provides service to both communities and the surrounding area, a total population of approximately 7,000.

There are 21 long-term care beds located at the site as well as other services including x-ray and lab, home care nursing, home support, mental health and public health. The City of Kamloops (about an hour’s drive) and Vancouver (three and a half hours away) provides urban opportunities. Larger cities are close enough to enjoy yet far enough away not to impact our life style.

The Long-term Care Coordinator is responsible for the coordination of day to day operations and quality long-term care within a designated clinical area(s). This position supports the seamless movement of residents through the healthcare system and in accessing appropriate resources.

The Long-term Care Coordinator also:
•Supervises as well as serves as a role model and a resource to staff for clinical decision-making, clinical assessments of residents and in the counseling and education of families.
• Reviews, analyzes and makes recommendations on the development of administrative systems such as policies, procedures and standards of resident care, adequate staffing levels, and a continuous quality improvement environment.
• Liaises with the interdisciplinary team for identification, coordination and efficient utilization of resources as well as plans for staff educational needs.

Shift types are days and shift times are from 09:00 to 17:00 hours with expected days of work Tuesdays and Fridays (excluding stats).

This position offers the opportunity to play an integral role in the development and leadership with staff. As it’s located in a rural setting, there are other opportunities for learning in terms of staffing and taking on other managerial duties.

Come live, work and play where others only vacation. It’s more than a career, it’s a lifestyle. Apply today!

Education, Training and Experience:

Graduation from an approved School of Nursing with current practicing registration with the British Columbia College of Nursing Professionals (BCCNP).

Three years of recent related clinical experience in the assigned practice environment and two years recent supervisory and teaching experience or an equivalent combination of education, training and experience.
