SLFNHA is pleased to recognize National Nursing Week,
May 10 – 16, 2021.
The theme this year is #WeAnswerTheCall and was developed by Canadian Nurses Association to showcase the many roles that nurses play in a patient’s healthcare journey. The pandemic brought to light the courage and commitment that nurses work under every day and showed the essential role of nurses in communities.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all Nursing staff for their continuous effort and dedication to improving the health of clients and the communities we serve. We are profoundly grateful to have such a dedicated team of skilled professionals to Answer The Call helping to keep us all safe.
