Spring is here – and so is the season to nominate an extraordinary nurse to be recognized during National Nursing Week May 9-13!
There are two categories to nominate an outstanding nurse, as well as a bursary available to nurses for further education. To nominate a nurse for an award or to apply for the bursary, please go to the Nursing Week home page, found on the WRH Intranet under the Programs and Services Directory.
THE DAISY AWARDS
The DAISY Awards recognize nurses for remarkable patient experience. These nurses consistently demonstrate excellence through their clinical expertise and extraordi-nary compassionate care, and they are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community. Deadline for submission is April 29. http://www.wrh.on.ca/Site_Published/wrh_internet/RichText.aspx?Body.QueryId.Id=56233&LeftNav.QueryId.Categories=779

LORI DUPONT BURSARY
Also, RNs who are taking or considering education courses are also encouraged to submit an application for The Lori Dupont Bursary. This is a $5,000.00 bursary funded by Windsor Regional Hospital and Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare to assist RN staff with continuing education costs. All ONA staff members who are planning to at-tend education courses, conferences and workshops or who are working toward certification in 2016, are invited to submit a bursary application by April 29th. Each successful candidate will be awarded up to $1,000. http://www.wrh.on.ca/Site_Published/wrh_internet/RichText.aspx?Body.QueryId.Id=71326&LeftNav.QueryId.Categories=810
The awards and bursaries will be handed out at a joint celebration with Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare at Met campus during Nurses Week, which runs May 9-13.
