Past Events

To celebrate Nightingale and plan for Nursing Week a group of nurses and leaders (including our Nightingale 2020 Team) meet 2-3 times a year by zoom. 2 nurses are from Ohio, 1 from California and 1 from Maryland and then a few (7) from within Ontario. We have been calling ourselves North American Nightingale Society. We hope to continue to meet and information share and be proactive though the Nightingale Bicentennial has passed.
