Message from the president.
Obtaining certification is a way to be recognized for your specialized knowledge in nephrology nursing. This year, more than 180 nurses passed their nephrology certification exam or renewed their certification. This now brings the total of nurses in Canada with their certification to more than 1,000. Congratulations!
Another accomplishment this fall was the first annual Nephrology Health Care Professionals' Day. This was held on September 19, 2007, in collaboration with the Association of Nephrology Dietitians, the Canadian Association of Nephrology Social Workers and the Renal Pharmacists Network. The theme this year was Celebrating Working Together. The purpose of this day is to recognize all the tremendous efforts by renal teams in caring for individuals. We received emails from members sharing with us how their unit celebrated the day. We have posted these examples on the CANNT website. I hope on September 19, 2007, you took some time to recognize your colleagues and celebrated working together for patient care.
My term as CANNT president is nearing completion. It has been a very exciting and rewarding experience with many opportunities. I look forward to my role as pastpresident, as Alison Thomas takes on the role as the next CANNT president.
As the holiday season approaches, I want to wish you all a safe and wonderful holiday.
Lori Harwood, RN, MSc, CNeph(C), CANNT President
