On April 10, 2023, we celebrate the second annual Indigenous Nurses Day in B.C. This day is an opportunity for Indigenous nurses and their allies to come together and collaborate towards solutions to preserve the cultural integrity and traditional knowledge of Indigenous Peoples.
At BCCNM, we recognize that Indigenous nurses are courageously answering calls to action through their leadership in social justice and are the touchstone for transforming colonial systems in healthcare. We honour the tenacity, courage, commitment, and activism of Indigenous nurses and recognize their invaluable role in meeting the healthcare needs of Indigenous Peoples.
