Nurses have been foundational to health-care delivery and improvement for centuries. To mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation, CNA is pleased to recognize some of those who continue to pioneer health innovation in Canada and around the world. The association is honouring 150 nurse innovators and champions in health care with profiles on our website.
While most nominations came through CNA’s jurisdictional members, independent CNA members (from Ontario and Quebec) and emeritus members were also invited to submit their name or a colleague’s name for consideration. As well, CNA is honouring a group of licensed/registered practical nurses and registered psychiatric nurses nominated by their respective organizations.
The 150 Nurses for Canada includes strong public advocates and leaders in advancing a patient-centred approach to quality health care through traditional, innovative or interprofessional practices. They inspire passion for nursing through their support of professional development by being mentors or advisors.
