  • Fun fact: Did you know that the "conga" was originally a street dance originating in Cuba? Its name is often mistakenly believed to be derived from the African region of Congo. One thing we know for certain is that this "conga-line" most definitely originated in LGH's emergency department. Happy Monday everyone!
  • People in Profile - Patricia, Registered Psychiatric Nurse at VCH's Carlile Centre: "My name is Trish and I’m a RPN. I LOVE being a nurse. There are so many diverse positions you can work in! Being a Psychiatric Nurse has allowed me opportunity to advocate and support humans within their bio-psychosocial-spiritual experiences. We are all human, and we all have a story, and we all have an ability or talent or strength to share.
Originally, I hadn’t considered applying to jobs outside of Calgary, but one day while I was on a trip to Haiti (I volunteer at a hospital in Port au Prince yearly,) I received a call from a 604 area code. I answered it and the person on the phone introduced themselves as a recruiter for VCH. They shared some positions available at the Carlile Centre, and the opportunities sounded amazing! The recruitment staff were lovely, welcoming, and enthusiastic. I think I may have asked my Recruitment Advisor to be my “best friend” at one point! I was directed to the job description, and eventually applied. A few weeks later, I was invited to interview for the Clinical Resource Nurse role and was ultimately offered the role soon after! It was a very cool and exciting whirlwind! I felt totally supported throughout the process. It made my transition to B.C. very smooth!"
The Carlile Centre in North Vancouver, where Trish works, is hiring! This facility is the first of its kind in British Columbia to provide specialized assessment and treatment for youth with serious concurrent disorders – mental illness and addiction. Want to learn how you can join the team?
