(WINDSOR, ON) – It’s time again to recognize the Windsor-Essex County Nurse of the Year from the many dedicated and wonderful nurses who make a difference every day with their patients in our community. This is the 10th Annual Lois Fairley Nursing Award.
The award was named for Lois Fairley, a graduate of Grace Hospital’s nursing program in 1955 who spent her career serving patients at Grace Hospital as a nurse and head nurse. She also served the nursing profession as a member of the Provincial Board of Directors of RNAO and served as President of the Ontario Nurses Association.
The award is now a tradition that encourages all the nurses that they are valued.
If you, or a loved one, have ever needed nursing care in a hospital, at home, or through our public health nurses, you know the difference that an outstanding nurse makes with patients and their families.
The award is selected and given by the Windsor-Essex chapter of the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) from nominations received from the public.
The nomination process is easy. In 500 words, or less, tell a story about how a nurse impacted the life of a patient, family, or the workplace.
For more information and nomination form, go to the website for the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario Windsor Essex.
Entries must be received by Monday, April 17 at 5:00pm.
The 10th Annual Award Presentation will take place the final week of April.
