Over the years, the School of Nursing has been proud to recognize our ALUMNI with three awards. We have honoured numerous PARTNERS with two important awards, and since 2020, we have acknowledged the hard work and dedication of our PRECEPTORS with two additional awards. Please take the time to consider an individual associated with the school of nursing for one of these accolades. Details of the awards and links to the nomination forms are provided below.
