Licensed Practical Nurse (Casual) Assisted Living

Baptist Housing provides exceptional holistic care as we assist seniors to experience life well in supportive communities in British Columbia. We serve through a culture of caring, demonstrating Servant Leadership, collaborating in Teams, building relationships and fun!

Baptist Housing in Victoria, BC is recruiting casual Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) who are excited about being part of the Team serving our Assisted Living Residents at Marrion Village. Please, note that we are under the single-site order. Professionals working in health-care facilities cannot work in more than one Long-term Care or Assisted Living residence while this order is in place.

Under the direction of the Assisted Living Manager, the Licensed Practical Nurse coordinates the delivery of Assisted Living Services on a day to day basis by implementing Resident Care Plans and liaising with family members and professionals regarding the Residents' care. The LPN supervises the delivery of services and medication administration by Resident Assistants and responds to Resident and family concerns. As a member of the multi-disciplinary team, the LPN demonstrates a commitment to service excellence, continuous quality improvement, the Wellness Model for person-centred care, and the Mission, Vision and Values of Baptist Housing.

As an ambassador of Baptist Housing, you model our values in all interactions, providing service with an attitude of compassion, respect and integrity. You love serving seniors and do everything you can to assist our Residents to live well. You are committed to achieving the mission of Baptist Housing, supporting your team every day, and you have a positive attitude.

You have exceptional communication skills, are able to manage time and workload efficiently, have demonstrated leadership skills, and are a critical thinker and problem solver. Successful candidates will have completed a recognized LPN program, have current licensure in good standing with BCCNP, and have experience providing care for seniors in a Residential Care environment.
