We say we love what we do, and we mean it!

Welcome to Launch Healthcare (also known as BeachNurse)! 

We specialize in connecting exceptional RN talent with world-class hospital opportunities in Canada and the United States.

We get to know you not only as an RN, but as an entire person. We want to know all about you – your unique hopes, dreams, goals, timelines and circumstances.

We're listeners. We truly want to know what makes you tick.

We tend to become friends with all of the people we work with! It's important to us to make great connection so we can ensure we're providing you with the best possible guidance, service and resources.

Why work with Launch Healthcare?

  • We have excellent relationships with leading US hospitals.

  • When you work with us, you don't have to compete with thousands of other applicants who are applying for positions through regular job sites.

  • We have exclusive access to internal postings!

  • When you feel you're ready to interview with a leading US hospital, it's our job to brag on you.

  • We're your career co-pilot. We help you from the beginning of your job search until you've begin working at your dream job (and beyond, if you need us!)

  • Our services are at no cost to you! We are compensated through our hospital partners.

President, CHRP, B.A. (Hons) 

I founded Launch Healthcare as a way to connect talented RNs to their dream jobs in Canada and the United States.


Following a background in career services within academic settings and the federal government, I discovered international nurse recruitment and fell in love!

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in psychology (honours) from Queen's University, a post-graduate certificate in human resources management from Humber College, and I've completed several commerce and language minor courses.


 Currently, I am a Certified Human Resources Professional with the Ontario Human Resources Professional Association.

When I'm not working, I am most likely helping my husband on the family farm, or enjoying food, laughter and simple pleasures with my family.

"I have the best job! I feel so lucky to do what I do each day. Looking back at each RN we have assisted, and seeing their amazing progress, reminds us that the work we do is meaningful and makes a difference." - Rebecca

Can you believe that Rebecca and I are actually neighbours?

That's right  Rebecca and I live next door to each other! The moment we met, we became fast friends.

I worked as a paramedic for 20 years. When I learned more about RN recruitment, I realized it was a perfect fit for me! I joined Launch as vice-president in 2015.


I love taking my inner working knowledge of hospitals, and then listening to the job goals of RNs to make their dream jobs happen.

When I'm not working, I enjoy a quiet country lifestyle along with my two very active teenagers and great husband. Hockey is a fan favourite, and boating is near and dear to our summertime hearts!

"There is nothing better than seeing the RNs we work with living out their dreams." - Julie

What Nurses Are Saying

Melly Chanthaseng

"Rebecca and Julie have been amazing, supportive and informative. The moment I became a grad nurse, I reached out to them as I’ve always wanted to be a travel nurse.

Bec and Julie were able to connect me with a job in the sunshine state. They’ve held my hand and helped me transition to America as smoothly as possible. They had given me tips on how to pass NCLEX, and were super helpful with applying for my Visa.

Bec and Julie were always available and easy to contact via text or phone call! I am so grateful for not only having them as recruiters, but to also call them friends! I love my job in Florida, and I’m excited for their next surprise visit. I cannot thank them enough!"

We'd love to help you find your dream job.
