Celebrating Nursing Week 2023

Nursing Week, May 8-14


The theme for 2023 is Our Nurses. Our Future. This theme showcases the many roles that nurses play in a patient’s health care journey. Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners have always faced challenges head-on, with commitment and courage.

Caring for our province’s most vulnerable, never giving up on their patients, and playing a vital role in trying to stabilize our strained healthcare system.

RNs, NPs, and all nursing professionals continue to show up to take care of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. Thank you for everything you do.
