Lois Fairley Nursing Award Nominations Open

12th Annual RNAO Lois Fairley Nursing Award Nominations Now Open

It’s time again to recognize the Windsor-Essex County “Nurse of the Year” from the many dedicated and wonderful nurses who make a difference every day with their patients in our community.

The award is selected and given by the Windsor-Essex chapter of the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) from nominations received from the public.

If you, or a loved one, have ever needed nursing care in a hospital, at home or through our public health nurses, you know the difference that an outstanding nurse makes with patients and their families.

The award is selected and given by the Windsor-Essex chapter of the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) from nominations received from the public.

The award was named for Lois Fairley, a graduate of Grace Hospital’s nursing program in 1955 who spent her career serving patients at Grace Hospital as a nurse and head nurse. She also served the nursing profession as a member of the Provincial Board of Directors of RNAO, served as President of the Ontario Nurses Association and on St. Clair College the Program advisory Committee.

Unfortunately, Lois passed away in 2007, and the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario instituted this award for Windsor Essex in 2008.

The nomination process is easy:

In 500 words or less tell us a story about how a nurse impacted a life of a patient, a family, their workplace or their community.

For more information and nomination form, go to the website for the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario Windsor Essex.

Entries must be received by Friday, April 26th at 5 pm.

The 12th Annual Award Presentation will take place in May, 2019.
