Proclamation - National Nursing Week, May 6 - 12, 2024

Event: National Nursing week 

Date: May 6 to 12, 2024 

Whereas National Nursing Week is an opportunity to recognize the contributions of nurses who work tirelessly across all healthcare sectors, advocating for their patients to ensure they receive the best care possible and bringing about transformative change in their health and well-being; and

Whereas the Canadian Nurses Association’s theme for 2024 is ‘Changing Lives. Shaping Tomorrow’ to recognize the tremendous impact that nurses have on individuals, communities, and the future of healthcare; and

Whereas Nurses are at the forefront of healthcare, playing a critical role in directly impacting lives through their care, compassion and expertise; and

Whereas Northumberland County recognizes and thanks its nursing staff at the Golden Plough Lodge long-term care home for their care and dedication in supporting residents to live lives of purpose, choice, dignity, and respect;

Now Therefore Be It Resolved That I, Warden Brian Ostrander, on behalf of Northumberland County Council, do hereby proclaim May 6 to 12 to be ‘National Nursing Week’ in Northumberland County.”

Dated this 17th day of April, 2024 


Brian Ostrander, Warden
