Celebrating Nursing Week: A Message from Nancy Shecapio Blacksmith and DPSQA-Health


In honour of Nursing Week, Nancy Shecapio Blacksmith, Director of Professional Services and Quality Assurance-Health is sharing a message to recognize the tremendous work of all nurses and auxiliary nurses who are part of the CBH family. 


Nursing Week is upon us and I would like to take the time to acknowledge, recognize, and celebrate each and every nurse and auxiliary nurse within the Cree Board of Health & Social Services of James Bay. I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude and admiration to each one of you for the unwavering dedication, compassion, and resilience you demonstrate every day.  Your commitment to caring for others, often under challenging circumstances, does not go unnoticed.  You are the heartbeat of healthcare, providing not just medical care, but also comfort, empathy, and hope to those in need.

Your tireless efforts embody the true spirit of nursing. You have adapted, learned, and grown, showing remarkable strength and courage.  Your work has a profound impact on the lives of individuals, families, and communities. 

This Nursing Week, let’s celebrate not just the profession, but also yourselves as individuals. Take pride in your accomplishments, care for yourselves as diligently as you care for others, and know that your contribution is invaluable and deeply appreciated.

May you continue to inspire with your compassion, lead with your expertise, and shine with your kindness.  Thank you for being our everyday heroes.

Happy Nursing Week!
