Call for Nominations: Health Canada First Nations and Inuit Health Branch Award of Excellence in Nursing

Three awards are presented annually during National Nursing Week: one to a FNIHB nurse; one to a nurse employed by a First Nations community; and one to a nurse working in an Inuit community.
Each winner receives a non-cash award valued at $2,500 for her or his professional development.
