UCalgary Nursing's annual recognition awards celebrates community for National Nursing Week
Each year, the Faculty of Nursing Pursuit of Excellence Awards recognize the hard work, commitment and success of its community of health-care providers. They are UCalgary Nursing students, faculty members, staff and alumni community partners who each make an impact at UCalgary Nursing.
It began as a successful recognition program in 2011 with generous support from Covenant Health, Canada’s largest Catholic health-care provider. In 2017, UCalgary Nursing's team of committed committee volunteers re-envisioned the program and renamed it The Faculty of Nursing Pursuit of Excellence Awards.
Due to COVID-19, the annual luncheon, always held during National Nursing Week was not held for three years. This year marks the first year where the in-person celebration was held.
