The NRIG executive board wants to wish you a happy National Nursing Week. Thank you for everything you do.
The theme this year is #WeAnswerTheCall and was developed by the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) to showcase the many roles that nurses play in a patient’s health-care journey. The pandemic brought to light the courage and commitment that nurses work under every day and showed the important role that nurses play in the community, from providing direct patient care to conducting research and policy work. The pandemic has not been easy for nurses or nursing students - we see and appreciate you.
To support and draw attention to the role of nursing research and support student development within NRIG, NRIG's student representatives have organized a fantastic session about clinical research in pediatrics, pain, COVID-19 and clinical trials. Sign up below:

Here are some other ways to commemorate nursing week promoted by the CNA:
- On social media:
- In all your posts, use #CNA2022 #WeAnswerTheCall #IKnowANurse #NationalNursingWeek #IND2022 #Nurses2022 #VoiceToLead
- Share pictures and stories that create awareness about National Nursing Week.
- Showcase and describe the diversity of your role, your team and your working environments.
- Use #IKnowANurse to share stories of exceptional nurses, because everyone knows a nurse who has left a lasting impression!
- Be personal: write thank-you notes as a sign of your appreciation for all that your nursing staff does for patients daily. Such gestures have become increasingly rare, so this simple act of recognition can make a profound difference in employee morale
We hope you have a wonderful week,
