Raise the BAR with this great LPN opportunity in Nanaimo

One of Canada’s favourite desserts and treats is the legendary Nanaimo bar – a delicious concoction of a wafer, nut and coconut base, with custard icing topped with chocolate ganache. If you’ve never had one, we can’t recommend them enough, and an interesting piece of trivia is that the delectable goodie is named after the great city of Nanaimo, B.C. Which, coincidentally, is the site of an incredible full-time licensed practical nurse (LPN) opportunity that we recently received! Read on to find out if this position is for you, and please don’t forget to check our blog daily for hot job posts and healthcare news.
