National Nursing Week 2019

Nurses: A heartfelt thanks for all you do 



 National Nursing Week 2019 runs from May 6-12


May 2-12 will be the dates for National Nursing Week 2019, alongside International Nurses Day and Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12.

The Canadian Nurses Association theme, Nurses A Voice to Lead, emphasizes how important nurses are in our lives — at every age, in all health situations, for all Canadians.

With more than 406,000 regulated nurses in Canada, the largest of any health provider group, nurses are the backbone of our health system. This week, we recognize the profession for their dedication and commitment to making Canada a healthier nation.
