Alberta Nurses are at your side and on your side

Nurses Week is celebrated internationally on the week that includes May 12 – the birth date of Florence Nightingale, who is widely recognized as the founder of the modern nursing profession. 

Nurses Week is time to recognize and appreciate the contributions nurses make every day. As frontline health care workers, nurses understand what health care means for Albertans. 

In hospitals, clinics, family homes and nursing homes, Registered Nurses and Registered Psychiatric Nurses are at your side and on your side, advocating for patients and families.
