  • Joe Siriban

    “When I joined BC Cancer Surrey, I knew right away that I belonged; instantly people made me feel like I was part of the team. It gave me a sense of belongingness, a sense of family in providing top-notch care to oncology patients. The best part about working at BC Cancer is collaborating with exceptional people - people who care so much and are passionately involved in providing the best care for cancer patients.”

  • Rayleen

    “You kind of get to take your nursing a little bit to the next level because you get to do those clinical pieces where you’re working on your assessment and you get to expand your mental health if you’re not already in that niche of nursing.”

    Rayleen

    Registered Nurse, Prince George Regional Correctional Centre

  • Natasha Prodan-Bhalla

    “I work at BC Women’s in the Heart Program for Women and the Access Clinic - both clinics in the Women’s Health Centre. I love working with women who have often been misdiagnosed or not thoroughly investigated, providing them with the comprehensive care that they deserve. Being a Nurse Practitioner at BCW is the most amazing job as it involves working with all members of both the health care team as well as the administrative and leadership teams.”
