Nursing Week is the annual celebration of the nursing profession and 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 and the World Health Organization (WHO) has designated 2020 as the Year of Nurse and Midwife to honor her birthday.
The Registered Nurses Foundation of BC 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.
We have nurses making a difference in our communities every day. This is shining through during the pandemic. This will continue to be true long after the pandemic subsides. Thank you to all nurses for the differences you make.
So in this the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, thank you to all including our nurses themselves who support their fellow nurses and the future of nursing alongside the Registered Nurses Foundation of BC.
