Information for Students Who Want to Work as Employed Student Nurses (ESN)

Dear Term 3 students,

As we move forward towards the end of Term 3, I wanted to let you know some details about the Employed Student Nurses (ESN) process. If you plan to work as an ESN after Term 3 completion, you will need a Letter of Good Standing from the School of Nursing to complete your health authority ESN application.

Good Standing will be determined by the Progressions Committee once all grades have been submitted by Term 3 course leaders.  Letters of Good Standing will be available during the 1st or 2nd week of August, 2017 and will be sent directly to you via email.

Please email Kelly Southam in the Student Services Office by July 24, 2017, if you need a letter or have any questions about the process:

Please review the UBC School of Nursing ESN Policy to determine your eligibility to become an ESN.

Warm regards,

Cathryn Jackson MSN, RN
Associate Director, UBC School of Nursing Undergraduate Program
