Registered Nurse


Peterborough Regional Health Centre

The care we provide at PRHC is shaped by three values: Guided by You, Doing it Right, Depend on Us. Joining our team means embracing and living these values every day. It means making a difference in the lives of the hundreds of thousands of patients we serve every year. Our regional hospital is located in Peterborough, Ontario, a 90-minute drive northeast of Toronto. With a capacity of 494 beds and more than 3000 healthcare professionals, staff and volunteers, PRHC has one of the busiest emergency departments in Ontario and offers an extensive range of services, including specialized programs in renal, stroke, cardiac, cancer care, mental health and vascular surgery, with many opportunities in a variety of areas. At PRHC, we value the ongoing learning and development of our people. When you decide to join PRHC, you are immediately eligible to apply to our education reimbursement fund for additional learning you decide to pursue. As a member of the PRHC team, you will be part of an exceptional working environment that provides a forum to share knowledge, to learn, to develop talents, relationships and careers. You will also be part of a culture that recognizes and rewards the achievements of its people and supports staff health and wellness. Finally, you will work at a hospital that is dedicated to ensuring our team has the resources they need. To this end, we are currently in the process of rolling out a regional clinical information system (EPIC) in partnership with six other hospital organizations to ensure we are positioned to provide the best possible care and support for our patients and their families.

RNs have a unique role in promoting health and preventing illness. As an RN at PRHC you play an integral part in helping the members of our community attain and maintain the highest level of health possible. As an RN, no day is the same and you will be responsible for providing comprehensive care autonomously to patients - some with predictable outcomes and others with unpredictable outcomes, who may or may not be clinically stable.

This can be challenging, but it is also rewarding. At PRHC, you will have the support you need from our team of Charge Nurses, Clinical Managers, and Professional Practice team to be confident and capable in your ability to provide exceptional care.

If you are ready to contribute to PRHC achieving our vision of exceeding the expectations of our patients and families every day, we want to hear from you!
