CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: Thanking & Celebrating Nurses Across Canada!

Canadian Nurses Foundation (CNF) is pleased to announce the call for nominations for this year’s Thank A Nurse initiative in conjunction with our upcoming CNF 2021 Nightingale MaskerAide virtual event taking place October 28, 2021.

We received such an overwhelmingly positive response last year with nurse nominations from coast-to-coast-to-coast – let’s continue the momentum this year and shine a much-deserved spotlight on our nursing heroes!

The initiative aims to spotlight nurses from all domains of practice from each and every province and territory. We invite you to nominate 1 or more Canadian nurses who you would like CNF to nationally recognize and celebrate.

Each nominated nurse will have the opportunity to be:
  • Gifted a complimentary ticket to this year’s immersive CNF 2021 Nightingale MaskerAide virtual event on October 28, 2021
  • Recognized nationally during the CNF 2021 Nightingale MaskerAide
  • Spotlighted in a #ThankANurse social post on CNF’s channels this year
The first 65 nurses to accept their nomination will be gifted a custom-made gold face mask by Canadian fashion brand Diana Coatsworth Design and an accompanying frontline tote bag.

HOW TO NOMINATE: Submit your nurse nomination(s) by completing the nomination form available HERE. All nominees must be registered nurses in Canada from can be from any domain - i.e., practice, education, research, administration and policy

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: Thursday, July 29, 2021 at 5pm EST. Once nominations are submitted, CNF’s team will reach out to each nurse to confirm their nomination.

Your support is much appreciated. For any questions, please feel free to reach out to #ThankYou!
