VCH Careers is undergoing a small technical issue with our systems. We are aware of the issue, and are working diligently to fix it. Please check back later today and we should be back up and running. Thank you for being patient, and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.


Our Employed Student Nurse (ESN) program provides a nursing employment opportunity to work in a clinical setting of up to 350 hours of hands-on experience with pay. These hours will help you consolidate your theory and clinical skills, build on your nursing practice and participate as a team member. In many cases, you can also apply your earned seniority towards your first RN/RPN job with us.

ESN educators and unit staff support your transition from student to new graduate nurse. ESN positions may be available at the following locations:

Our program is unique and the opportunities are different at each location. Employment opportunities usually commence in the spring/summer to coincide with school breaks.



We have now completed the hiring for the Spring/Summer 2017 intake. Thank you to all who applied! We will be posting again this Winter for positions starting in Spring/Summer 2018. Stay tuned!

Thank you for your interest in Employed Student Nurse opportunities with Vancouver Coastal Health.
