How to apply for an ICU Nurse position

To become an ICU Nurse, you are required to complete the Critical Care Nursing Orientation Program. To begin, apply directly to the facility of your choice for a Critical Care Nurse Trainee position (A minimum of one-year acute care experience working in surgery, medicine, emergency or cardiac care is preferred).

If you have already completed the CCNOP, have ICU training or have worked in critical care in the last five years, please apply for a nurse position (Nurse 2 – Critical Care) at the facility and/or critical care unit of your choice. For more information, visit the CCNOP webpage, speak with your manager or Chief Nursing Officer, or contact the site you wish to work at in the expanding Site Contact Menu below.

How to apply for a General ICU Nurse position

General ICU Nurses provide care for patients in ICU, acting as an extension of the units’ critical care nurses. General ICU nurses must complete a two week orientation and are offered ongoing support to succeed in their role.

If you are interested in joining our team, please apply for a General ICU Nurse position at the facility and/or critical care unit of your choice. For more information, visit the CCNOP webpage, speak with your manager or Chief Nursing Officer, or contact the site you wish to work at below.

One-Time ICU Incentive

Manitoba Intensive Care Unit Nurses working in an ICU, and who meet the following criteria, are eligible for a one-time incentive of up to $3,000.

Criteria:

  1.  The amount paid as an incentive is based on the EFT held by the nurse during the one-year qualifying period. The one-year qualifying period requires nurses to work 0.6 EFT or higher in a critical care unit for a one-year timeframe beginning between May 1, 2021 and February 28, 2022 and ending one year later. The incentive will not be adjusted based on hours worked in excess of the nurse’s EFT (Should a nurse accept a higher EFT position during the qualifying timeframe, the amount will be adjusted provided the EFT remains 0.6 or higher).
  2. To be eligible, a nurse must complete 12 months of active service working in an ICU at a minimum of 0.6 EFT.  Incentives will be pro-rated for eligible nurses according to their EFT worked. Incentives will take the form of a one-time payment, as set out below:
  3. A nurse who works 1.0 EFT for 12 months will receive $3,000
  4. A nurse who works  0.8 EFT for 12 months will receive $2,400
  5. A nurse who works  0.6 EFT for 12 months will receive $1,800
  6. A nurse who works a combination of EFT during the 12-month period with a minimum of 0.6 EFT will receive an adjusted incentive payment. (For example, a nurse who works 0.6 EFT for 6 months and 1.0 EFT for 6 months will receive $2,400)
  1. The one-year qualifying period requires nurses to work 0.6 EFT or higher in a critical care unit for a full 12 month timeframe beginning between May 1, 2021 and February 28, 2022 and completed no later than March 1, 2022.
  2. Eligible nurses must complete the Critical Care Nursing Orientation Program (CCNOP) prior to  December 31, 2022, in addition to all other eligibility criteria.
  3. Full details are outlined in Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) #35 in the MNU Collective Agreement.
