2024 National Nursing Week

2024 National Nursing Week

National Nursing Week (NNW) is May 6-12, 2024, and this year’s theme is Changing Lives. Shaping Tomorrow.

Nurses maintain one of the highest levels of trust amongst health professionals, and this trust is maintained in part through professional self-regulation.

The Nurses Association of New Brunswick (NANB) is proud to carry out the mandate of supporting nurses in the provision of safe, ethical and competent care, while assuring the public of a certain standard of nursing care. 

On NNW 2024, NANB salutes all New Brunswick nurses. As the world of health professional regulation evolves, NANB must respond and progress to continually remain relevant, effective and ensure legislated responsibilities are accomplished.

New Brunswick faces major challenges in improving the working conditions of its nurses.  Innovative solutions are possible.  Canada’s Chief Nursing Office, Dr. Leigh Chapman, has recently led the release of the Nursing Retention Toolkit: Improving the Working Lives of Nurses in Canada.  It is a practical resource created by and for nurses that contains initiatives to improve the working lives of nurses in Canada. A document worth discussing!

Visit the Canadian Nurses Association’s (CNA)  website to learn more about this year’s theme,  download social media images/ posters and to register for NNW events.

During this year’s NNW, NANB will randomly choose 24 nurses from the provincial nursing database to receive free 2025 registration renewal. Winners will be contacted directly by email. 

Happy National Nursing Week to one and all!
