The is proud to celebrate and acknowledge Nursing Week 2017. Nursing Week is a time to recognize the year-round dedication and achievements of Registered Nurses (RNs), Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs), and to increase awareness of their contributions to the well-being of Canadians. This year, Nursing Week runs from May 8 to May 14.

Here is how a public health nurse in the Regional Municipality of York's healthy living division  described the inspiration for her submission to win a theme contest prize through the Canadian Nurses Association

"Nursing roles are evolving at an exponential rate, particularly with the influence of technology and the expansion of digital technologies. We can leverage social media to raise awareness, promote advocacy and connect people across the globe on important issues. For me, this theme speaks to the expanding traditional and non-traditional roles, settings and sectors nurses work in as well as the unique opportunities for our profession presented by social media and emerging tech trends."
