Nurses play a vital role in the delivery of health care to Canadians. In fact, they have the broadest and farthest-reaching role compared to any other health care professional. The profession advocates for health promotion, educates patients and the public on the prevention of illness and injury, provides care and assists in cures, participates in rehabilitation and offers wellness support.
In addition to caring for people, nurses are leaders in pioneering change in health care and public health. Nurses innovate, advocate and cultivate knowledge-based practices and systemic changes that ultimately improve and advance individual and collective health.
Nursing matters because it makes a difference in the day-to-day well being of your neighbours, co-workers, friends and family members. Nursing matters because it’s making a difference in the quality of health care for all Canadians.
