During National Nursing Week (May 9-15) the FNHA looks forward to honouring the contributions of nurses across the organization and the province.
As they did in 2021, the Canadian Nurses Association has once again designated the theme for this year as #WeAnswerTheCall.
With the COVID-19 pandemic now in its third year, that theme encapsulates the incredible and tireless efforts of our nurses in stepping up, day in and day out, to answer the call and deliver health care to people in need.
The FNHA recognizes that without our frontline nurses answering the call of communities we would not be able to meet our vision of “healthy, self-determining and vibrant BC First Nations children, families and communities."
National Nursing Week comes just one month after we celebrated the inaugural BC Indigenous Nurses Day, recognizing the Indigenous nurses championing a system that embraces traditional approaches and ensures culturally safe and accessible care.
Nurses are a critical part of our primary care network and the FNHA is always looking for people who have the passion and commitment to help others.
