Island Health hopes to attract North Island doctors, nurses with recruitment drive

Island Health has a lot of empty positions to fill, as it launches a recruitment drive for doctors and nurses on the North Island.

The region has suffered from a chronic shortage of health professionals for years, prompting some hospital and emergency room closures.

Now, from the Comox Valley to Port Hardy, Island Health is looking to hire 30 full-time doctors, and eight locums to provide temporary relief for doctors currently at work who need time off.

Nurses are also desperately needed – there are 31 full-time positions open and even more part-time, mostly for Port McNeill, Port Hardy, and Alert Bay. Island Health is also hiring freshly-graduated nurses to work in North Island communities.

Island Health is also offering up to $8,000 per year in bonuses for employees who work on the North Island, and up to $15,000 for registered nurses.
