We know it’s important to recognize and celebrate innovation and professional success with peers and colleagues. When opportunities for awards are available, we will feature them prominently on this page and our social media pages.

2017 Professional Nursing Awards

The Association is proud to announce that we are presenting the Professional Nursing Awards in 2017 and going forward. Promoting and celebrating excellence in nursing practice is not only one of the strategic goals of the Association, but also one of the core principles embedded in the work of the Association every day. With this event we can showcase nursing accomplishments and use our voice to recognize, encourage and highlight nurses within our profession and within our province. 

We thank the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba for planning the awards for the past 10 years and their support as we transition this celebration to our organization.

 Nominations for the 2017 Professional Nursing Awards are closed. Winners will be announced at the beginning of October. Visit the Professional Nursing Awards page for all the information.
