Nurses being celebrated at upcoming dinner

The Grande Prairie nursing community is hosting a dinner for National Nursing Week to celebrate and acknowledge nurses’ work in the community. The dinner will include a silent auction, karaoke, and funds raised will go towards the Grande Prairie Regional Hospital Foundation’s Striving for Nursing Excellence Bursary.

The program was founded to advance the education of nurses at the post-secondary and graduate level. Grande Prairie & Area Nurses Committee Secretary Kajal Patel says she was once a recipient of the bursary, so it is important to her to help put on the dinner to support other nursing students.

“I was so grateful for the bursary as it helped me cover my tuition expenses during the pandemic, so I joined the committee as a way to give back to my community and also pay it forward to the future generation of nurses.”

Patel adds the dinner is a way to appreciate and support as many nurses in the region as well.

“Not only is this a way to celebrate nurses and all the hard work that nurses do, but it’s also a way to celebrate the future generation of nurses and recognize them by getting these funds developed to support them with their education.”

The dinner is scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. on May 12th at the Delta Hotel. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased online until April 27th.
