Nursing Week 2017

May 8-14, 2017

Nursing Week is the annual celebration of our profession.

It is held every May to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.

The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is proud to recognize the dedicated registered nurses and nurse practitioners who provide quality care for their patients, clients and long-term care residents. From the bedside to the classroom and the boardroom, they make the world a healthier place.

Our theme this year is Nursing: Values. Evidence. Courage. It pays tribute to the work of RNAO members to improve the nursing profession and the health system as a whole.

We may publish them in Registered Nurse Journal and/or post them on our website and on social media.
