Attend an event

Come and celebrate nursing with us. Attending an event is one of the best ways to understand what nurses do and (just as importantly) the impact that Husky Nurses make everyday. We hold a range of events, from small brown-bag research lunches to our annual marquis event, the Nurses Recognition Banquet.

To receive notifications and invitations to these events, or to talk about a recent event experience, please
