Welcome to the Nexus Primary Care Clinic
At Nexus Primary Care Clinic, our goal is to deliver team based care to you and your family. We do this through partnership with physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals such as social workers, midwives, mental health professionals, and pharmacists to keep you, your family and your community well. A nurse practitioner (NP) is a registered health professional with advanced university education who provides a full range of health care that is individual for you. We are a clinic of primary care providers that provide a full range of health care services to individuals, families, and communities in South Nanaimo.
***UPDATE November 15th, 2021***
Next Update: December 15th, 2021
We hope to open our intake for early January 2022, we will provide an exact date at least 3 weeks ahead of time. Please check back mid December for the specific date.
Due to staff shortage we have not been moving through our waitlist as fast as expected. We will not be re-opening until we have caught up on our waitlist.
Our application process is currently paused as we continue to work through the large number of requests we have already received for patient care.
We are continuing to book intake appointments daily and anticipate opening our attachment process again in the future as we work towards our attachment goal of 6800 patients by 2023. If you have already applied, we appreciate your patience as we work through the application process.
Thank you to the community for all the amazing support we have received since opening last summer!
Please note, we are not a walk-in clinic. We only see patients who have completed their intake and been attached to our clinic.
We are offering phone and virtual video appointments.
Other initiatives: prescription renewals, review of test results, consultations and follow ups can be conducted by phone or virtual video. Any in-office visit that is essential will be arranged by the provider at the time of your virtual visit.
If you have a clinic appointment, please arrive on time. If you are early, we request you wait outside or in your car until your appointment time.
When your nurse practitioner determines you need to be seen, please keep the following in mind:
- We would like you to wear a mask
- Patients will be asked to use hand sanitizer
- We may take your temperature and history to rule out any COVID symptoms
- To ensure social distancing waiting area chairs will be spaced apart
- Just bring what you need, do not bring backpacks, carts or other items
- We would ask only the patient arrive for the appointment, unless accompanying a child or someone with disabilities
