Faculty of Nursing honours community of health-care providers for National Nursing Week
Each year, the Faculty of Nursing Pursuit of Excellence Awards recognize the hard work, commitment and success of its community of health-care providers. They are UCalgary Nursing students, faculty members, staff and alumni community partners who each make an impact at UCalgary Nursing.
It began as a successful recognition program in 2011 with generous support from Covenant Health, Canada’s largest Catholic health-care provider. In 2017, UCalgary Nursing's team of committed committee volunteers re-envisioned the program and renamed it The Faculty of Nursing Pursuit of Excellence Awards.
Due to COVID-19, the annual luncheon, always held during National Nursing Week was not held this year.
"There's never been a better reason and need for us to celebrate the wonderful work that goes on day in and day out in our Faculty of Nursing," says dean Sandra Davidson. "All of our award winners and nominees make this an amazing place to be. You truly represent the pursuit of excellence."
