Your role in community
As a Nurse Practitioner (NP) with Community Nursing, you will provide comprehensive health care to community members in Mayo, Pelly Crossing and surrounding areas. You have a passion to serve our rural/remote communities and blend your research, specialized nursing knowledge, experience in complex decision-making, and legislated authority to provide advanced practice primary heath care to meet the health needs of individuals and families.
As an NP in community, you will act as an important link between clients and health services, where you seek to strike a balance between autonomous practice and a broader collaborative model of care that includes primary health care nurses, family physicians, and other allied health professionals (i.e. optometrists, dentists, etc.). Telehealth, telephone and fax are available modes to provide necessary links between and outside of community.
This Nurse Practitioner role was first piloted by Community Nursing in 2019. We are looking to establish this role permanently to ensure continuity of care for the community. This is an excellent opportunity to have a leading role in the continued development of NP practice in Yukon Territory and requires a passionate individual with a commitment to providing high-quality care in a rural setting.
Working with us
The NP Mayo position is a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the charm of rural/remote living in Canada’s North, while having the access to the conveniences of the city within a 5-hour drive. As an NP with Community Nursing, you will form part of the communities in which you serve. Housing in Mayo will be provided, and on-site visits to Pelly Crossing are completed over 2 days (approx.) every second week. Hours of work fall under regular business hours, where after-hours/weekend-call are not a routine part of this position – enabling you to take advantage of the many amazing outdoor recreation opportunities and events the community and surrounding areas have to offer.
In addition to the generous benefits package, Nurse Practitioners working for Yukon government receive an annual market adjustment allowance of $12,000 per annum and a retention allowance of up to $3,000 per annum. Community Nursing provides fulsome orientation and training for new employees. Your ongoing professional development may also be supported through the Yukon Government Learning & Development Fund (https://yukonnect.gov.yk.ca/employee-info/Pages/learning-development-fund.aspx) as well as the Yukon Registered Nurses Education Fund (https://yukonnurses.ca/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=307&Itemid=279).
