National Nursing Students' Week 2023

November 13, 2023

During National Nursing Students' Week (NNSW) we recognize the work and commitment of nursing students across Canada. This year, NNSW runs from November 19 to 25, starting with National Indigenous Nursing Students’ Day on November 19. The Canadian Nursing Students’ Association (CNSA) chose this week as it coincides with Mary Seacole’s rumoured birthday of November 23, 1805.

Nursing students are the future of our profession and the advocates and activists of tomorrow. Almost all nursing students in Ontario are automatically affiliate members of ONA. ONA is proud to support and advocate for nursing students and provide opportunities for their engagement and development.

Each Chapter school organizes their own NNSW events and ONA members are encouraged to learn about and support events in their communities. For more information, please contact the CNSA's NNSW coordinator at
