Job Description

Nurse Practitioner – Urgent & Primary Care Centres
Ref# 100-1458

Ever dream about an innovative career in primary care on beautiful Vancouver Island? Whether you’re a new grad or an experienced nurse practitioner, we have the career for you!

Island Health has exciting opportunities for Nurse Practitioners to work in the Victoria area at new Urgent & Primary Care Centres (UPCCs). Join a dedicated team of primary care providers and other allied health staff to collectively deliver integrated team-based care to patients.

Urgent & Primary Care Centres (UPCCs) are a core component of comprehensive primary care delivery in a local primary care network (PCN). They are a highly flexible and team-based resource designed to complement existing primary care capacity and fill service gaps in the PCN in which they are situated. UPCCs provide a mix of primary care service, including urgent primary care, episodic care for users without a primary care provider, and longitudinal primary care for a subset of users who are attached to the UPCC.

Located in beautiful Victoria on Vancouver Island, BC, UPCCs are bright new clinics offering turn-key operation.

UPCCs operate through a team-based approach and can include services provided by family physicians, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, mental health and substance use consultants and social workers, as required by the local population.

Our practices are diverse, interesting and extremely rewarding. Practice patient and family-centred care in an in-demand profession with steady industry growth, great wages, flexibility and the benefits that matter most.

Island Health is seeking Nurse Practitioners to work in the Victoria area at Urgent and Primary Care Centres (UPCCs). Join a dedicated and dynamic team of primary care experts committed to achieving the highest levels of care quality and service excellence in Greater Victoria. Reach out to Medical Staff Recruitment today for more information or to discuss these opportunities directly with our Medical Director. Please email


Island Health looks forward to supporting primary care providers and the health care team in providing innovative primary care services that are at the forefront of primary care improvement in BC. Modeled after best practices, primary care providers will have the opportunity to optimize data from the clinic information system to improve patient care.

There is a requirement to establish a minimum panel and, in some of our clinics, to participate in urgent care. As the most responsible primary care provider, after hours care for patients is inherent in the services. The Nurse Practitioner will participate in an after-hours call group, sharing after-hour coverage with other primary care providers (Family Practitioners and Nurse Practitioners) at the clinic.
As soon as possible.


Victoria, BC’s scenic capital, is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island and has a population of 94,000. Renowned for its breathtaking natural beauty and enviable quality of life, this is an ideal place to pursue your medical career and create the kind of lifestyle only dreamt about. Victoria is a forward-thinking and active community living in a unique blend of heritage charm and modern city-scape. Rainforested rivers, sandy beaches and numerous lakes are easily accessible for the outdoors lover. Few areas in the world can match BC’s scope of outdoor activities. Vancouver Island offers everything from skiing to surfing, plus golf, sailing, mountain-biking, world-class fishing, and much more. With its temperate climate, rich heritage and vibrant cultural scene, Victoria provides the very best of urban and rural living.
