National Nursing Week

National Nursing Week

May 07, 2019
The Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) of BC recently worked with spoken word artist Julia Pileggi and a number of nurses from across the province to create a video commemorating the incredible work of the nurses in BC, to celebrate National Nursing Week – which runs from May 6th to May 12th – and to thank the nurses of British Columbia (BC) for all their work.

The video features nurses from across the province and from multiple programs and areas of practice – nurses with BC Cancer in the Interior, nurses at BC Emergency Health Services, nurses on night shift at BC Children’s Hospital, and so many more. Pileggi tells the stories of these nurses and all the hard-work, support, and compassion that go into their days with an amazing spoken word performance.

The video reminds us that the work of nurses goes beyond what we might think; they are our “nurses, caregivers, witness, and everything in between.” It reminds us to say thank you to our nurses not only during nursing week but whenever we can, for the work they do is not only heroic but praiseworthy as well.
