This year, as we celebrate our great nation, we also celebrate the nurses across our country who provide quality health care, knowledge, insight and compassion to people of Canada in their homes, in our hospitals, our schools, our clinics and on our streets. Nurses are there for us from the first stages of life to our final moments. Whatever health issue we are facing, nurses help us cope and lead healthier lives. Nurses get us through. Every step of the way.
