National Nursing Week is an annual celebration that occurs the same week as Florence Nightingale’s birthday, May 12.
The theme for 2023 is Our Nurses. Our Future. This theme showcases the many roles that nurses play in a patient’s health-care journey. The past few years have brought to light the courage and commitment that nurses work under every day, and showed the important role that nurses play in the community.
“To all our Interior Health nurses, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your ongoing commitment to supporting patients, clients and each other in our journey to optimal health and well-being for all. Your caring continues to touch everyone here at IH, and beyond.”
- Cheryl Whittleton, Chief Nursing Officer & Professional Practice Lead
