CHNC - National Nurses CHNC - National Nurses

The Community Health Nurses of Canada are excited to launch a new webinar series!

The purpose of the one hour webinars is to advance community health nursing practice in Canada, provide an opportunity for CHNs to network being that the National Conference was postponed in 2020 and 2021, increase the profile of the innovative, evidence-based, adaptable work that CHNs are doing in Canada during the enduring pandemic, and provide a lead up to the entirely virtual National CHNC Conference in June 2022 (FYI, the full conference program is now available, and registration is open!).  Presenters will have the opportunity to share their work followed by time for questions.  The webinars will be recorded and posted on YouTube for those who are unable to attend but would like the information.  There is no charge to attend the sessions.

The CHNC Standards and Competencies inform the practice of CHN to meet the goal of creating a health Canada. You are invited to join the CHNC Standards and Competency Committee to share and reflect on the resources available to guide CHN Practice across the variety of practice settings for CHN. Lessons learned and reflection on the impact of living the standards during the challenging pandemic context will be shared. The goal of this webinar is to provide a "coming home” to the foundations of CHN work and sharing stories from CHN practice to share the learning and reflect on our practice. We want to share and give a voice to the innovation, flexibility and resilience of community health nurses. Presented by: CHNC Standard and Competencies Committee:
