Need a way to make some good money? Government of Canada jobs that are hiring right now include ones for nurses to help fight COVID-19 by screening international travellers for the virus. These positions pay up to $96,000!

The Public Health Agency of Canada has opened up applications for the COVID-19 nurse inventory which means jobs are up for grabs once again.

These positions are available in different locations across the country including ports of entry.

So, there's a need for clinical screening officers, quarantine officers and other registered nurses.

Nurses who live in Canada and Canadian citizens living abroad can apply to help in the fight against COVID-19.

Since the inventory was open for applications earlier in the year, you don't need to apply again if you did it before.

The deadline is October 5 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

If you get the job, your salary will be from $80,304 to $96,659 which is a lot!

Your duties will include doing health assessments of international travellers to determine the risk to public health and making sure that the Quarantine Act is effective.

These positions also deal with case management along with making sure that notices to the public are clearly posted and health is promoted to people who travel.

You need to check quite a few boxes to be considered for a position.

That includes being a registered nurse in the province or territory where they would be working.

Also, you need to have experience in public health, community health, travel-related nursing or infectious diseases.

Experience in performing health assessments is also required.

Knowing both English and French is an essential part of this job.

At a later date, you might have to prove that you meet more requirements like experience in emergency preparedness and response among other things.

The COVID-19 nurse inventory is meant to staff people who can respond to the pandemic.

That could include casual and term work meaning you work 90 days or less in a year or for a specific period of time.

If you can commit to working full-time hours on a rotational basis, you'll be given preference over others.

If you're looking for a job with the government that doesn't need that much education or experience, there are options.

Statistics Canada is hiring people across the country to help out with the 2021 census and you pretty much just need to know how to use a mouse.
