150 Nurses for Canada

Nominate a Canadian nurse for special recognition during Canada’s 150th anniversary

Deadline: April 21, 2017

Nurses have been a foundational component of health-care delivery and improvements in Canada since Confederation. As Canadians prepare to celebrate their nation’s 150th anniversary, CNA recognises that nurses will continue to pioneer health innovation in our nation and abroad. That is why we are looking across the country for the nurse innovators and champions in health care that will be profiled on the CNA website.

If you or a colleague have a passion for the nursing profession and are strong advocates for social justice and quality health care in Canada, we want to hear from you. We want to showcase the gifted nurses that are able to connect with patients and their families and who are leaders in advanced patient-centred approaches through traditional or innovative methods.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of Canada’s 150th celebrations!
