We are

Every year, National Nursing Week gives us a chance to come together and celebrate our amazing profession. This past year has been incredibly difficult for nurses across Ontario. On behalf of Ontarians everywhere, we want to take the opportunity to express our deepest gratitude for the sacrifice you’re making every day to keep us safe.

While physical distancing will keep us apart for this Nursing Week, we won’t let that stop us from celebrating. This year, we will be hosting a series of virtual events that will be open to all nurses. Each of the days will focus on a theme that is central to promoting elements of self-care and wellness aimed at supporting our nursing community to Review, Reset, Reinvent, Reinvigorate and Reflect.
