Nursing Week 2019: May 6-12

Nursing week is May 6-12!

Once again, the SEIU-West Nursing Care Committee (NCC) has reached out to all SEIU-West health care unit executive (Chairs, Co-Chairs, Vice-Chairs, and Communicators) to ask if they want a little financial help to recognize the amazing Continuing Care Assistants (CCAs), and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) who work in their facilities.

If you want to make sure your unit is celebrating, reach out to someone on your unit executive to see what they have in mind.

Requests must be made through this short online survey by Monday, May 13, 2019.

Don’t forget to send us a picture of how your unit celebrated Nursing Week! By doing so, you’ll be eligible to win a CCA/LPN SEIU-West mug, new to 2019! Just send your picture to our Facebook page or to Catherine.Gendron@seiuwest.ca and you and the members in the photo could each win a mug! We ask that you send these photos in early due to limited supply.  As a reminder, we do share these images on social media and on our committee page so please ensure that those in the picture are aware you are sharing it, and that no residents, clients, or patients are in the shot.

And  be sure to check out this great video featuring Kylie (Continuing Care Assistant - CCA), Leah (Licensed Practical Nurse - LPN), and SEIU-West President Barb Cape! This video will be playing on CTV all week - thank you to our wonderful nursing team for the incredible work you do each and every day! Check out the video:
