Niagara Health is celebrating Nursing Week by recognizing and thanking our dedicated nurses for all they do to provide extraordinary care.At more than 2,100 strong, our Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses and Registered Practical Nurses are an essential part of our healthcare team. We are also highlighting the outstanding contributions of our nurses who work in non-traditional roles such as information communications and technology, corporate services, research, education and many more.
This year’s theme, #YESThisisNursing, aims to shine a light on the continually evolving profession. Niagara Health has many inspirational nurses who are leaders internally and in the community, who volunteer, and dedicate themselves to the Armed Forces.
“Nursing Week is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate our caring nurses who make an extraordinary impact on the lives of those we serve,” says Derek McNally, Niagara Health's Executive Vice President, Clinical Services and Chief Nursing Executive. “We thank all of our nurses for their compassion, dedication and commitment to providing high-quality care.”
Nursing Week is being celebrated across Canada May 8-14. Several activities and celebrations are taking place at Niagara Health to acknowledge the tremendous dedication and outstanding contributions of our nurses.
The Nursing Excellence Awards are taking place on Tuesday, May 9 across all of our sites as we officially celebrate the inspiring leadership and excellence of our nursing professionals.
The awards will be presented to those extraordinary individuals who have been nominated by their peers. The celebration will also include highlights of scholarly achievements of our nursing professionals over the past year.
