Celebrate Nurse Practitioners' Week 2021

October 19, 2021

Media Release: Ontario Nurses' Association Celebrates National Nurse Practitioner Week, November 7 to 13

We recognize the vital role that Nurse Practitioners (NPs) play in our health-care system and celebrate the work of our NP members during Nurse Practitioner Week, November 7-13.

NP Week is held annually to celebrate NPs and raise awareness of the exceptional care they provide to communities across Ontario. It is an opportunity to educate policymakers on the need to harness the full potential of NPs to improve timely access to health care for all Canadians. In 2018, the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions released the results of its Pan-Canadian Nurse Practitioner (NP) Retention & Recruitment Project which looked at ways to improve working conditions to better retain and attract NPs and expand NP positions throughout the health-care system.

If you have photos or stories about NP Week that you'd like to share with the ONA community please email them to us at webmaster@ona.org and we'll post them on the website and through social media. Be sure to include the Local number with your submission.
