UHN is pleased to present our new Nursing Strategy. This five-year plan was co-created by a diverse group of nurses from across our organization. We have defined the four strategic priorities which are fundamental to the future of Nursing at UHN; each articulates a roadmap for specific actions and initiatives that we will cultivate, implement and advance together to strengthen and elevate Nursing at UHN.
Donor support will help the Nursing Program address some of their highest priorities, including providing mentorship opportunities for newly hired nurses, supporting nurses in career advancement and development, and fostering a culture of research and innovation within the nursing profession.
