The Registered Practical Nurses Association of Ontario (WeRPN) is extremely saddened to hear the passing of an Ontario Registered Practical Nurse (RPN).
This RPN was a passionate nurse who was dedicated to always going above and beyond to deliver the best care possible. Over the past 13 years, she provided knowledgeable and compassionate care in an acute care setting working across different practice areas as a member of Clinical Resource and Mental Health teams. She was described by colleagues as a bright light who left a lasting impression on all those she worked with. Throughout the pandemic, she was a trusted resource and support to both her colleagues and patients.
This RPN’s untimely death is a tragic loss for Ontario’s nursing community and a terrible reminder of the devastating impacts of COVID-19. WeRPN would like to express sincere condolences to this nurse's family, friends, co-workers, and patients whose lives she impacted.
