We invite families, staff and our community to "thank a nurse" for the amazing work they do, as we observe National Nursing Week
Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital will observe the National Nursing Week from Monday, May 8-14, 2023. National Nursing Week is the annual celebration of nurses in Canada, an opportunity to recognise the important role that they play in the community. This year, the theme is Our Nurses. Our Future.
"Nursing Week enables us to pause and celebrate the outstanding contributions of nurses across the health care system and beyond", says Irene Andress, vice president programs and services and chief nursing executive. "Nursing Week celebrates excellence in nursing practice – in clinical care, leadership, research and education and it provides an opportunity to thank and appreciate nursing as a profession and nurses in their roles - locally, provincially, federally and globally."
During the week, Holland Bloorview will announce the recipients of the DAISY Award, an international recognition program that honours and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day.
"Every year, during the week of nursing pioneer Florence Nightingale's birthday, we have the opportunity to celebrate our nurses – their commitment and dedication to the health care and wellbeing of our clients and families," says Ana DiMambro, clinical nurse manager and collaborative practice leader – nursing, pharmacy and respiratory therapy. "It is a time for us to honour our nurses and recognise the many roles they play in our clients’ health-care journey."
Holland Bloorview invites families, staff and our community to "thank a nurse" for the amazing work they do.
