Indigenous Nurses Day
The CRNS will recognize April 10, 2023, as Indigenous Nurses Day. This is an excellent opportunity to bring together Indigenous nurses and allies to celebrate the many contributions of Indigenous nurses and to collaborate towards solutions as an essential shift in preserving Indigenous nurses' cultural integrity and traditional knowledge. Watch CRNS social channels to celebrate the day and join other events here.
Jean Cuthand Goodwill was the first Indigenous Woman to finish a nursing program in Saskatchewan. Since 2008, the CRNS has offered awards to three Indigenous nursing students from the University of Saskatchewan through the Jean Goodwill Award. The award was established to honor the memory of Jean Goodwill, whose career was dedicated to improving health care for Aboriginal people. More information about Jean can be found here and here .
