Nurses are an integral part of the healthcare system.

This is National Nursing Week, a time to honour and celebrate all that they do. As the slogan for this year’s events suggests, nurses truly are “with you every step of the way.”

At UHN, there are about 4,200 nurses, making them the largest professional group in our workforce.

Check back on UHN News on Wednesday for a video of UHN nurses completing the sentence.
