The Association of Registered Nurses of BC

Nurses have been a foundational component of health-care delivery and improvements in Canada since Confederation. As Canadians prepare to celebrate their nation’s 150th anniversary, the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) and its jurisdictional members recognise that nurses will continue to pioneer health innovation in our nation and abroad.

ARNBC is looking for B.C. nurses who are innovators and champions in health care to be profiled on the CNA and ARNBC websites.

Nominate a colleague (or even yourself!) with a passion for the nursing profession and are strong advocates for social justice and quality health care in Canada, we want to hear from you.

Note, applicants will be reviewed and selected by the ARNBC Awards Committee based on awards committee guiding principles.

The application deadline was April 21, 2017 at 4:30pm. Successful nominees will be notified in May.
