About the Awards

The Excellence in Leadership and Advocacy Award honours a member who has made a difference to the health and well-being of their community and their profession through leadership, activism or social justice efforts.

The NU Leader Award honours a student member, or member with under five years nursing experience, who has demonstrated outstanding achievements in BCNU-focused advocacy and activism and who embodies Union values.

Each recipient's award includes a monetary prize of $1,000.00 CAD and a customized keepsake featuring beautiful, original artwork.

Thank you to all nominees and nominators who participated in this extensive process to recognize and reward our outstanding fellow members.

BCNU Leadership Awards will return next year with another call for nominations.

Nominees were current and active BCNU members or student members in good standing and were nominated by fellow BCNU members. Recipients were selected at the sole discretion of the BCNU Leadership Awards selection committee based on the nomination supporting materials that provided examples of how award criteria was met and how nominees demonstrated BCNU core values: collectivity, democracy, equality, excellence, integrity, social justice and solidarity.
