The CAMSN Conference Committee is pleased to announce the next Biennial Conference…
Medical-Surgical Nursing: It’s Getting Complicated

It is CAMSN’s desire to create two days filled with stimulating information relevant to the complex nature of medical-surgical nursing. Not only is CAMSN’s goal to focus on the diverse health challenges seen on a daily basis, but also to provide education on some of the new controversial matters that are arising in the medical-surgical nursing world.

In honour of National Nursing Week (May 8th-14th), learn about the history of the Nursing Sisters in Canada. Battle nursing, a concept begun by Florence Nightingale, found its way to Canada in 1885.
“This tribute to Canadian Nursing Sisters tells of these brave and dedicated women. Their story is one of humour as well as anguish. It is a story of unyielding women who braved all the hardships of war to do their duty and serve their patients, and of those who nursed the casualties left in the wake of war.”

There are over 45,000 medical-surgical Registered Nurses in Canada. Medical-surgical nurses form the largest single group of nursing professionals in health care and make up over 18% of all RNs working in Canada!
While nationally med-surg numbers are quite notable, CAMSN has just over 800 members. This leads us to believe that a lot of medical-surgical nurses simply don’t know about CAMSN.
Have you told your friends and colleagues about the Canadian Association of Medical and Surgical Nurses?
