National Nursing Week 2016

National Nursing Week is being held from May 9 – 15, 2016. This year’s theme is “Nurses: With you every step of the way”, which speaks to the vital role nurses play in the lives of their patients. This week we celebrate the important work done by nurses in all areas of care, and say thank you for your hard work and dedication.

To help you observe National Nursing Week, the NSNU has once again provided each union local with $100 to put toward your celebrations. We hope you will let us know what you did to mark the occasion. If you would like to share your National Nursing Week story with us, you can contact
