The Guardian
Marion Clark, director of nursing, Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) and Hillsborough Hospital, and Audrey Fraser, associate director of nursing education, QEH, have been awarded the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) Centennial Awards. The awards will be presented at a ceremony in Ottawa in November. Clark also received the 2008 CNA Order of Merit for Nursing Policy for Canada at the CNA Biennial Convention in Ottawa recently. This award is one of five Orders of Merit for various areas of nursing practice including policy, research, administration, clinical practice and education. Candidates were nominated by their provincial associations and selected by the Canadian Nurses Association board of directors. “These awards are a prestigious honor and I extend my sincere congratulations to Marion and Audrey who were recognized for their outstanding contributions to nursing,” said Health Minister Doug Currie. “Nurses play an essential role in the health care system and we’re fortunate to have such highly skilled and dedicated nurses here in Prince Edward Island.” The CNA Centennial Awards are a one-time award designed to recognize 100 exceptional registered nurses from across the country, whose personal and professional contributions have made an outstanding and significant impact on the nursing profession.
