Municipalities across the Province Recognize Nursing’s 100-Year Milestone

FREDERICTON, May 6th, 2016- The Nurses Association of New
Brunswick (NANB), representing approximately 9,000 registered nurses
and nurse practitioners, is the largest group of health professionals in
New Brunswick celebrating 100 years (1916-2016) of continued
excellence in the evolution of nursing practice and regulating the
nursing profession.

“We are truly honoured by the overwhelming support and recognition
from mayors and councils around the province,” says Brenda Kinney,
President of NANB. “This speaks to the public’s trust in nurse
professionals and demonstrates the role nurses play as an essential
component of our health system, caring for patients while supporting
healthy communities.”

Nurses are active and engaged in all communities: they are at the
bedside; in homes, and in schools; they educate future generations of
nurses; lead research and international development initiatives; play a
key role in Canada’s military; and are catalysts to improving access to
health services.

A number of municipalities across New Brunswick have expressed an
interest in paying tribute to the NANB Centennial celebrations in a
variety of ways including: flag raising ceremonies; proclamations; flower
bed commemorations; and meet and greet receptions.
