Nursing Week is an annual celebration of our profession. It is held every May to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
As SEIU Healthcare nurses, we consistently deliver quality care and uphold our practice in the highest regard. We are the backbone of our sectors and the pulse of our community. SEIU Healthcare is proud to recognize the dedicated nurses and nurse practitioners who provide quality care for their patients, clients and long-term care and retirement residents.
Nursing Week is YOUR week and we urge you take the time to celebrate all that you and your coworkers do. If there is a nursing week event taking place in your workplace, please send details and photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can share them on our social media channels. If you are sharing your own pictures, make sure to use the hashtag #SEIUNurses to share your union pride with the thousands of other nurses across the province who are also celebrating.
