Bringing the ‘swag’-ger to National Nursing Week, May 7-13, 2018


(UPDATE APR. 13/18 – Due to an overwhelming response, we will not be able to accept any further requests for Special Event Kits. Requests received to date will be filled over the next few weeks.)

Paaarty!! National Nursing Week is not only about parties. It’s a sober acknowledgement of the importance of professional nurses and their valuable work which benefits all Canadians. And doesn’t that deserve a party?

Request Special Event Kit
Deadline: April 6, 2018

Supporting parties and teas and luncheons and wine, Special Event Kits filled with LPN-branded swag is once again being made available by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta for events held in Alberta the week of May 7 – 13, 2018. The product includes lipbalms, pens, and much more. Your ‘what should we get for door prizes’ dilemma is solved!


Last year, over 700 kits were distributed, so event organizers are encouraged to place their requests early. Supplies are limited. Kits may be requested by April 6. Kits are not guaranteed to contain one item per attendee.

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.
