Who hasn’t at one point come into contact with a nurse? There are over 360, 000 of them regulated to work in Canada. If you’ve had to visit a hospital, get homecare after an accident or illness, visit a medical clinic, or call a healthcare hotline, you’ve interacted with a nurse.

Today’s nurses can do more than ever to help you with your healthcare. The field has traditionally been dominated by women: 94% are female, while 6% are male. They may have one of three designations, according to the work they do and the province they are in:
  • Registered Nurses, commonly called RNs, exist in all provinces. An RN holds a four-year baccalaureate degree in nursing from a Canadian university or its international equivalent.
  • Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) and Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) hold two-year practical nursing diplomas from accredited colleges. They must also complete the national licensing exam before beginning a career in healthcare

What follows is 10 types of nursing jobs commonly found on Monster.ca’s job post database:

Clinical Study Observer (and Interviewer) Nurse

Have you ever taken part in a clinical study for a new medication or healthcare procedure? Odds are the person looking after you is a specially trained clinical studies nurse.

Educator Nurse

Found in hospitals, post-secondary schools and travelling around to small communities, an educator nurse teaches new techniques and processes in healthcare to others.

Geriatric and Retirement Nurse

The aged need more healthcare, more often, than younger Canadians. Fortunately geriatric nurses are uniquely qualified to deal with medical and emotional challenges of our elders.

Intensive Care Nurse

For the seriously ill or injured, intensive care nurses can literally be life savers. They generally provide hands on care in hospitals. Some late night and weekend shift work may be required.

Mental Health, Psychiatric and Addictions Nurse

According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 20% of Canadians will personally experience a mental illness in their lifetime. More will have a drinking, gambling or drug addiction. Nurses who are trained in these matters provide support in clinics, hospitals and schools throughout the country.

Nurse Midwife

Thinking of having a home birth? You’d do well to have a nurse midwife on hand. They can help if the mom or new baby needs on the spot healthcare assistance.

Nurse Practitioner

Provides comprehensive assessment of patients including diagnosing diseases, disorders and conditions. Initiates treatment including healthcare management, therapeutic interventions and prescribes medications.
