Thanks4Giving!

In our many years as the Registered Nurses Foundation of BC, everything that we are is because of outstanding support. This support takes on many faces – the dedication of our volunteer boards under exceptional leadership, our donors (each and every one, no matter the size of the contribution), those who are responsible for establishing one of our nursing student bursaries, often in memory of a loved one, staff members and finally but not least, our bursary applicants/winners.

Lest we forget…

As November 11 approaches and we honor those who have and continue to defend Canada, with their commitment but often with their lives.  So at this time we would like to not only thank them but to recognize the vital role nursing has had in all their lives during armed conflict and afterwards…..so many stories of bravery and dedication.  One such story is that of Ruth Echo McIlrath.  Her memory is honored in a bursary set up by her niece Fern Irwin and will be awarded in 2018.  Read about Ruth’s story on our news feed.  Thank you veterans…we will not forget!
