Join the Community
Do you remember when you first decided to become a health care professional? How you imagined your relationship with clients? Did you envision closeness and the chance to make a difference in peoples lives? Too often, hospital staff are pulled in so many directions they don’t have the time to really get to know their patients. For many, this inability to spend quality time with patients is frustrating and at odds with why they entered healthcare. For some, Community, Home Care, or Public Health is the solution.
- An opportunity to develop knowledge of a wide range of medical and surgical conditions including primary health care, rehabilitation and palliative care and includes health promotion, prevention, early intervention, education and counselling to their clients.

- A sense of satisfaction, helping client remain involved in their family life and stay at home

Community & Public Health staff report a deep sense of fulfillment and satisfaction from their jobs. The opportunity to help clients remain involved in their family life and stay at home is deeply satisfying. Community and Home Care Nurses tell us “they wouldn’t change it for the world.”
