Advocacy  >  Year of the Nurse

We are
Advocates.

The World Health Organization has designated 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and the Midwife in honour of the 200th birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale. This special event is an opportunity to shine a light on the important contributions that nurses and midwives make every day across the globe.

In honour of the Year of the Nurse, we launched a special campaign video to share a glimpse into the impact that nurses make.

As part of the year-long celebrations, WeRPN and other organizations are planning a series of events to showcase the essential role that nurses play in our health system. We encourage nurses to stay up to date and take part in these celebrations.

Check back often for updated information about events happening in your community. Have an event you’d like to profile? Get in touch.
