National Nursing Week


May 9-15, 2016 is National Nursing Week, alongside International Nurses Day and Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12.

This year’s Canadian Nurses Association theme, Nurses: With you every step of the way, emphasizes how important nurses are in our lives — at every age, in all health situations, for all Canadians.

With more than 400,000 regulated nurses in Canada, the largest of any health provider group, nurses are the backbone of our health system.
