Reviews about Pay & benefits for Registered Nurse at Island Health

Collaborative and great colleagues

Management support varies based on unit/department. But the union is strong in all areas (heu, bcnu) so the wages are good. Overall I love my job and my coworkers.

Exhilarating, Learn As-You-Go Environment

Island Health, which was previously known as Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA), is a great employer, offering decent benefits and wages as per the collective agreement. Being in a collective agreement means that there isn't a whole lot of flexibility, but depending on your manager, you may be able to work through your personal needs in order to manage your work-life balance. I worked at 6 different locations on Vancouver Island during my 12-year career with them. Each location had its own work environment, which was heavily dependent on those you were working with. As a whole, the environment was often supportive and reflexive. It became more stressful as time carried on, however, as we were working short staffed more and more frequently.
