National Nursing Week, May 11-17, 2020
Every year, National Nursing Week gives us a chance to come together and celebrate our amazing profession. In honour of Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday, the World Health Organization (WHO) has designated 2020 as “Year of the Nurse and the Midwife” to shine a light on the impact that nurses are having across the globe. Recently, that impact has only been amplified with nurses like you at the forefront of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 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. Now more than ever, as a nursing family, we know we’re in this together. With that spirit in mind, we’re pleased to share a special tribute video we made in honour of all of you to kick off Nursing Week 2020:
