Happy Canada Day!

Dr. Jeanne Besner

I cannot think of a more fitting tribute to all Canadian RNs than the bestowing of a tremendous honour on a deserving RN. I hope many of you have already heard this exciting news. Dr. Jeanne Besner, former CARNA President, former Chair of the Health Council of Canada and all around force of nature—has been admitted to a very prestigious group in being awarded the Order of Canada. The Order of Canada! Wow! Jeanne’s achievements speak for themselves, she is an absolutely
amazing nurse leader.  If you have met her, then you know that she is also one of the most passionate nurses anywhere—it simply radiates from her when the discussion turns to nursing. I am so proud to know her, and count myself lucky to call her my friend.

Congratulations Jeanne—you continue to inspire all Alberta RNs!

    Jeanne – Bob and I were delighted to hear that you have been awarded The Order of Canada. I am very proud to say that I was your secretary for a few years starting in 1990 and I’ve told many, many people that you were such a delightful, organized person to work for.

    For your interest, we now live in Charlottetown, PEI.

    Mona
