Nursing Week 2020

May 11-17, 2020

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. Nursing Week 2020 marks the 200th anniversary of Florence Nightingale's birthday.

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.
