  • This week marks National Nurse Practitioner (NP) Week – an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge all our NPs who work across a variety of community and acute care settings at VCH. The NP Week celebrations were held in Vancouver and North Vancouver, and brought together NPs from across VCH, as well as NP students currently preceptoring within VCH.  The celebrations today included a light breakfast and an opportunity to connect and socialize.

NPs have been a part of VCH for the past 13 years and the role of NPs is continually evolving. This past August marked a new milestone - NPs officially became a Regional Department and NPs are now recognized as medical staff at VCH.

From students to new NPs to veteran NPs, this year’s NP Week celebrations were an opportunity to connect with colleagues and recognize the growing number of NPs across VCH. Thank you to all our NPs for being leaders and autonomous practitioners who work collaboratively to provide the highest quality of care!

  • “It is always a rewarding feeling to discharge a patient home, who’s recently undergone a lung transplant! I am very fortunate to get to be part of a tremendous team (and one of the four lung transplant programs in Canada) that literally give people a new beginning in their lives,” says Kevin, Nurse Practitioner (NP) for thoracic surgery and lung transplant program at VGH.

Kevin loves the acuity, intensity, and fast pace that the thoracic service provides. “There is never a boring day at work. I get to collaborate with and learn from some of the most brilliant minds at work. Even in the face of a difficult day at work, I feel that my colleagues, are there supporting and encouraging me.” Originally recommended to his current position by a friend at VGH who thought he would be a great fit, Kevin met with the head of thoracic surgery, Dr. Yee to further discuss the position. “Dr. Yee talked to me about the philosophy of his practice and about the ways my career could cultivate in this position. He also took me on a quick tour of the thoracic unit and introduced me to the entire thoracic team on the first day we met (before I even applied for the job)! Realizing the position was a great fit for me, I took it as a temporary contract, which later became a permanent position,” says Kevin.

Although Kevin’s job can be challenging at times, he always feels supported by his team and colleagues, who he now considers friends. “The surgeons, as well as everyone on the interdisciplinary team, are always willing to share their knowledge with me, which is constantly shaping me into a more confident and competent person. The directors of the surgical program, NP professional practice lead, and my NP mentors have been extremely supportive and encouraging from day one.”

  • Happy Nurse Practitioner (NP) Week! We are proud that NPs have been part of VCH for the past 13 years, bringing their knowledge and values of nursing together with medicine. VCH recognizes the growing role of NPs and continues to expand NP opportunities across community and acute care settings.

We met with Jennifer, Nurse Practitioner on the North Shore Community, and learned about her experiences working at VCH. “It’s an exciting time to be working for Vancouver Coastal Health as a Nurse Practitioner: leadership is excited about role development and the number of NPs is constantly growing. With key roles in addictions, mental health and complex chronic diseases, as NPs we have carved ourselves crucial roles in health care delivery - this is so cool! When I started here in 2012, there were only two NPs in North and West Vancouver, and since then we have expanded to six NPs with VCH and one in private practice! The energy in the Nurse Practitioner community at VCH right now is palpable - it’s a great time to be joining the team!” If you’re interested in advancing your NP career at VCH, follow the link in our bio!
