Nursing Week, May 9-15, 2022

Nursing Week, May 9-15


The past two years have truly shined a light on the incredible commitment of Registered Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and all nursing providers here in Newfoundland and Labrador. You’ve faced unprecedented challenges with courage – caring for our province’s most vulnerable, never giving up on your patients, and playing a vital role in our response to the global pandemic.

Thank a Nurse

After more than two years on the front-lines of the pandemic and a growing nursing shortage, NL’s nurses need our support now more than ever. Send a thank-you note or message of support to show your appreciation for their hard work and dedication. This simple act of recognition can make a positive difference. We’ll share your messages with our members! Thank a Nurse

Colouring Sheet

We also have a Happy Nursing Week colouring sheet for children who like to draw and doodle! Share their colorful creations with us by May 15! We’ll share them on social and draw two names to win $25 Cineplex gift cards. Email
