Happy National Nursing Week!

Wednesday, May 11, 2016

With more than 406,000 regulated nurses in Canada, the largest of any health provider group, nurses are the backbone of our health system. This week, we recognize the profession for their dedication and commitment to making our community a healthier one!

At Somerset West CHC, not only do our nurses and nurse practitioners (NPs) work in clinic, they provide outreach at high schools, shelters and rooming houses, seniors buildings and basically wherever a need is identified. What sets them aside from many health care professionals is that they are trained to work in a holistic manner and look at all the factors that influence a person’s health and well-being. We're proud to say that both our Walk-In Clinics are unique in that they are led by NPs.

Nurses, thank you for all that you do to support the health and well-being of our community!
