As a Lean organization, we annually recognize exemplary Lean work with the Lean Award. Nurses and their interprofessional partners are regularly key stakeholders in this award.
Nurses are also routinely recognized for their contributions to advancing strategic initiatives and priorities across the organization. An example is our ‘SHINEing Star’ Awards for small wins that individual nurses or teams have made related to our strategic elements of quality/safety/patient experience, people and culture, medical/clinical staff collaboration and/or financial performance.
On Professional Governance Day we regularly recognize nurses and interprofessionals with publication and presentation awards. We also provide our council chairs with service awards for a minimum of two years of council service.
We proudly recognize the contributions of professional nursing in our organization in our Nursing and Clinical Excellence Annual Reports.
