The CARNA Awards of Nursing Excellence recognize Alberta RNs and NPs for their contributions to nursing practice, from recent graduate nurses to those who have inspired through decades of dedication.
A long-service recognition certificate is given to any currently practising CARNA member (RN, NP, GN, GNP or CGN) who graduated from an entry-level RN education program 30, 40 or 50 years ago. The years may include part-time nursing and educational leave, and do not have to be consecutive years of employment.
Thank you to the nurses who have shared their expertise and mentorship, and demonstrated commitment and passion for the profession.
The Vogel Award recognizes contributions through service on Provincial Council and is awarded annually to a Councillor, excluding the president, who has served for at least one year of the current term.
