CNF doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19

We are committed to doing all that we can to support our nurses who are on the front-lines of serving our communities during these challenging times.

As leaders in health care, we understand the importance of social distancing, which is why our employees have been working from home while continuing to support our community. We stand with all front-line health care workers, who are needed now more than ever, in their communities during this time of crisis.

Nurses are currently ensuring Canadians receive the help they need – in hospitals, clinics, palliative care, long term care homes and in public health. They are working tirelessly taking care of vulnerable Canadians, children, and their families and loved ones affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

Together with your support, CNF is investing in nursing education, research and training today so we can be better prepared to face today’s health care challenges as well as those we will face in the future.

Foresight is 2020

2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife. We are also celebrating the 200th birthday of Florence Nightingale, who helped pioneer modern nursing and public health hygiene methods that we are all using at this very critical time to help contain Covid-19.

With this international spotlight on nursing, CNF is highlighting the essential role nurses are playing in shaping health outcomes across Canada, including Covid-19. For 2020 and beyond, we need nurses’ help—and yours.

If you want to #ThankANurse for their selfless work in fighting COVID-19, please consider adding their name to our Nightingale Wall to be unveiled this fall. Learn more here.
