We offer many opportunities for students seeking experience working in a healthcare setting! Visit our job board to find your fit and work with us.
Hiring student nurses and new graduates
Learn from our experienced mentors while you sharpen your skills in diverse clinical settings.
Undergraduate nursing employees
Registered nursing or registered psychiatric nursing students who have completed a minimum of 600 hours of clinical practice for Edmonton acute care and 450 hours of clinical practice for rural and continuing care may work as an undergraduate nursing employee (UNE).
We post UNE positions through our online recruitment system. You will need to create a candidate profile and visit our job board to view opportunities. We usually post UNE positions in late February and the spring.
New graduates in any profession may apply for positions posted on our job board. You must be eligible for or hold active registration with the applicable registering body (i.e., College of Registered Nurses of Alberta, College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta, etc.)
Nursing students working as health care aides
If you have finished the first year of a practical nursing program or the second year of a bachelor’s program, you can apply to work as a health care aide.
If you’re a nursing or allied health student who is not yet eligible for a UNE or health care aide position, you may apply to be a service attendant. This is a great way to gain experience in a healthcare setting while you finish your studies.
