Prairie Mountain Health welcomes students and apprentices in all areas of study that can be accommodated.
Prairie Mountain Health is committed to providing students/individuals/apprentices and health service providers with an opportunity to gain valuable clinical and work experience in a health care related career.
Student practicums are arranged through your Education Institution Student Services Coordinator for placement within our facilities.
Prairie Mountain Health is a beautiful place to learn and play, offering both modern conveniences and rustic outdoor experiences. When you decide to do your practicum with us, you are deciding to live in a modern community surrounded by wide-open spaces, lakes and uplands. There is plenty of opportunity to balance the stress of student life with the relaxation of playing in Parkland. Whether you love down-hill skiing, mountain biking, swimming, snowmobiling, wakeboarding, canoeing, jet skiing, shopping or just hanging out, the Parkland provides it’s to you. No matter where you are, you are moments from contemporary urban services and stunning rural scenery. The best of both worlds!
Summer Student Opportunities
Prairie Mountain Health will promote the employment of students for the purposes of summer student recruitment and potential recruitment upon graduation. Prairie Mountain Health will attempt to hire the most suitable summer student for summer employment and provide duties and responsibilities that are meaningful in creating an educational-learning experience
For example: Are you a 2nd or 3rd year nursing student interested in working for the Prairie Mountain Health as a Health Care Aide while home from university/college breaks?
You’ll have the chance to gain some experience in a health care setting. Casual hours are available all year round. You must have completed equivalent education credits to a work as a Health Care Aide and be available to work.
