In 2015, over 7100 Licensed Practical Nurses in 148 healthcare facilities in Alberta participated in National Nursing Week events.
This year’s National Nursing Week is May 9-15, 2016, and CLPNA has complimentary Special Event Kits filled with LPN-branded ‘swag’ available for your event! Special Event Kits contain clever and cool items to be used as giveaways, door prizes or contest prizes: lanyards, pens, lip balms, hand sanitizer, sewing kits, flashlights and more.
Kits must be ordered from CLPNA and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis for events in Alberta. Product type and number of items depends on the number of expected attendees and number of requests received. There is no guarantee of receiving one (1) item per event attendee.
Special Event Kits can be ordered until April 8 by email or fax using the Special Event Kit Request Form below.
Request Deadline: April 8, 2015
National Nursing Week is an opportunity for nurses, their employers and the public to reflect and celebrate the contributions of the nursing profession.
In 1971, the International Council of Nurses designated May 12 (Florence Nightingale’s birthday) as International Nurses Day.
In 1985, in recognition of the dedication and achievements of the nursing profession, Canada’s Minister of Health proclaimed the second week of May as National Nursing Week.
