Manitoba Nurses Recognized for Outstanding Contributions

The Association of Registered Nurses of Manitoba (Association) will recognize the winners of the Professional Nursing Awards, Manitoba’s top nursing honours, and the Manitoba recipients of the Canadian Nurses Association’s (CNA) 150 nurses for Canada, tonight at the Celebrating Excellence Cocktail Reception. More than 100 registered nurses (RNs) and their guests will attend the reception.
The Professional Nursing Awards are presented to RNs who are innovators, leaders and outstanding contributors that go above and beyond in their practice. This year, 10 award winners were selected.

In addition to the winners of the Professional Nursing Awards, the Association will recognize the eight nurse innovators and champions of healthcare who received the CNA 150 Nurses for Canada honour. 

“This is the first year the Association will present the Professional Nursing Awards, an honour we welcome,” says Margaret Rauliuk, chair. “Recognizing excellence in nursing is a critical piece in supporting our members and encouraging everyone to strive for innovation and outstanding patient care. We are particularly proud to see the caliber of nominations this year with all the change and challenges in the healthcare landscape in Manitoba.”

Previously, the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba was responsible for the awards. When the Association was incorporated, this program along with others, passed from the College to the Association, a young organization now in its second year of operations.
