Healthcare is more than a job.
It is a career, and, for some, a calling. From Indigenous midwives who welcome new babies into the world, to personal support workers (PSWs) helping seniors and elders stay in their homes, to traditional wellness workers who support holistic health for their patients, there are endless opportunities in this field!
Right now, healthcare needs YOU.
Health care-related occupations are expected to need over 16,000 new workers across NPAAMB’s region by 2025! (MDB Insights, 2018)
Indigenous health care workers bring unique and valuable perspectives to their work. They understand that health is about more than medicine and machines, it is about physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
But don’t take our word for it! Click through the videos below to learn about all the career paths available in this in-demand field. You will hear directly from Indigenous health care workers about their education, their passions, and their day-to-day reality.
