Registered Nurse – Critical Care Course (Critical Care Unit) Opportunity – Full Time (5) – Markham Site

Markham Stouffville Hospital

This is a Contract position in Markham, ON posted November 16, 2023.

Land acknowledgement:

Oak Valley Health honours the traditional territory of the closest Indigenous communities, the Chippewas (chi-puh-waas) of Georgina Island and the Mississaugas of Scugog Island. The Haudenosaunee (Ho-de-no-shau-nee) and Anishinaabe (Ah-nish-in-ah-beh) have lived, worked and existed on this land from time immemorial. This land is covered by Treaty 13 signed with the Mississaugas of the Credit, and the Williams Treaty signed with many Mississauga and Chippewa bands.


Who you are:

  • You encompass Oak Valley Health’s core values and live the words of respect, trust, commitment, compassion and courage
  • You are a patient and/or client centered individual who performs at an exemplary standard
  • You are a team player with excellent communication, critical thinking and prioritization skills


What we are looking for:


As a registered nurse, you will become an integral member of the inter-professional team of the critical care unit (CCU), responsible for providing compassionate, patient and family centered care.  The CCU currently has openings for January 2024 Critical Care Course Intake, for which Oak Valley Health will pay for your tuition and time. The course is an opportunity for registered nurses interested in working in the CCU, to develop their knowledge and skills in preparation for a career in critical care at Oak Valley Health’s Markham site.  We are considering full-time applications at this time.


Upon successful completion of the Critical Care Course, you agree to commit to a period of twenty-four (24) months of employment at Oak Valley Health in the CCU.  If you resign during this twenty-four (24) month period or decrease your status (from full-time to part-time or casual or part time to casual) you will reimburse Oak Valley Health for the tuition fees paid by the Hospital according to the following schedule:


6 Months or Less                              100% of Tuition Paid

6+ to 12 Months                               50% of Tuition Paid

12+ to 24 Months                             25% of Tuition Paid


The Hospital is authorized to deduct fees owing from your wages.


If you do not successfully complete the program, you will not be eligible to work in the CCU.   We will endeavor to transfer you to another unit within the Markham site based on needs and your clinical experience and skills.   In addition you will be required to reimburse Oak Valley Health the full amount of the cost of tuition.


About the unit and the role:


The CCU at Oak Valley Health is an exciting area to work, where you are guaranteed to expand on your knowledge and skills. Our unit receives largely medical/surgical cases and is composed of both level 2 and level 3 critical care areas. We are supported by Criticall Ontario, allowing us to accept life or limb patients. We also have a critical care response team (CCRT) designed to provide care to the most acute and complex patients throughout the hospital, reduce readmissions and contribute to the learning of our care partners in other clinical areas. The scope of practice in the CCU recently expanded to include sustained low efficiency dialysis (SLED), allowing our patients to receive even more comprehensive treatments at the right place, with the right team, at the right time. Consistent with our hospital’s history of evolving to meet the needs of our growing community, our CCU, along with only a handful other institutions, is privileged to receive reinvestment funding, allowing our unit to expand from 15 to 20 beds. This reinvestment funding will also reconfigure our CCRT, so that it will be physician led, making it at par with leading CCRT models in other organizations throughout the industry.


As the team continues to grow, there are many development opportunities for its members. The successful candidate, upon completion of the course, will practice in an environment that upholds excellence in professional practice and customer service. You will develop, implement and evaluate care plans. Using your clinical expertise and in collaboration with the inter-professional team, you will be responsible for delivering excellent care that is holistic and patient/family centered.


What you bring to the role: 


  • Current Certificate of Registration with the College of Nurses of Ontario
  • A minimum of 1 year of current acute care nursing experience or ICU or Emergency Consolidation within the past year
  • Excellent physical assessment skills
  • Current BCLS with a commitment to complete ACLS certification within 6 months after hiring
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Evidence of ongoing professional development and continuing education within the last 2 years
  • Demonstrated good attendance and performance record with the ability to maintain this same standard
  • Demonstrated commitment to a healthy and safe workplace for self and others (staff, patients and families, etc.) by taking all reasonable precautions and working in compliance with hospital related policies, health and safety legislation and best practices and completing relevant mandatory education as required.


Work Schedule:


Successful candidates will attend the full-time course in the Winter 2024 term (January 2024). Classes will take place from 8am-4pm, Monday – Friday. To ensure success in the program, students must be able to attend all lectures and do 3-4 hrs of homework each night. Upon successful completion of the full-time critical care course, the successful candidate must be available to work 12 hour day and night shifts, weekday and every other weekend, with flexibility to cover additional shifts as required.  Please note that schedules may change based on operational needs.
