Education Pathways to Battle Low RN Numbers

Overview:

Registered Nurse (RN) numbers are low, so this community has developed education lines to tackle that. A nurse can take a rural emerge course through University of Northern BC (UNBC) and are guaranteed to stay in Bella Coola. Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) pays for it, but the nurses must commit to a 1 year return of service in the community.
