National Sexual Assault and Forensic Nurse Examiner Programs
NANAIMO Forensic Nurse Examiner Program
NANAIMO is on central Vancouver Island, BC.
The NANAIMO forensic nurse examiner program is a 24/7 on call team responding to all ages and all genders inclusive of elder abuse, child abuse, human trafficking, intimate partner violence and sexual assault. We are a mobile team so when the nurse is on call she could be responding to one of any 6 sites that we travel to in the central island region.
Applicant must be an RN with at least one year nursing experience. Nurses interested in joining the team and questions regarding training and hiring can email Aimee Falkenberg the clinical coordinator for Central Island Forensic Nurse Examiner Program at Aimee.Falkenberg@viha.ca
