UOIT celebrates Nursing Week


In honour of nurses across the country and to celebrate their own nursing programs, the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) and Durham College celebrated the 28th National Nursing week from May 10 to 16. The two institutions kicked off the week by welcoming the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care’s Provincial Chief Nursing Officer Dr. Debra Bournes to campus to speak with students and faculty.

“We are thrilled to have Dr. Bournes join us as we celebrate nurses across Canada,” said Dr. Ellen Vogel, Dean, Faculty of Health Sciences, UOIT. “This event is a wonderful way to come together to recognize their dedication and commitment to helping others.”

Dr. Bournes and attendees of the event engaged in a discussion about the benefits of the collaboration between both institutions and the exciting research opportunities and innovative programming that evolved as a result.
