CNA Order of Merit Awards

The call for nominations is now closed

Please read our criteria before submitting your nomination.

The CNA Order of Merit Awards were inaugurated in 2008. These awards honour excellence in five domains of practice: clinical nursing practice, nursing administration, nursing education, nursing research and nursing policy. The awards were created to honour nurses who – through hard work, leadership, innovation and knowledge – have had a significant and sustained impact on the nursing profession and the practice of nursing in Canada.

The 2020 recipients will be presented with their awards during the Canadian Academy of Nursing Fellowship Induction and CNA Awards Ceremony on November 20, 2020, 12-2:30 p.m. ET.
