As we continue to navigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and learn new ways to meet the needs of the membership, BCNU is pleased to announce its first ever virtual conference this fall.
BCNU's annual Human Rights and Equity Conference will take place on November 26. While this year's conference will be virtual, BCNU's goal remains the same: to bring members together for professional development and to learn about social justice issues that affect the nursing profession.
The theme of the conference centers on the many health, social and political issues that have arisen in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The conference will offer members an opportunity to engage in dialogue on these and other related issues and to reflect on how we can begin to shape our collective future as nurses, health care workers and union activists.
Join your colleagues from across the province for an interactive and engaging day of learning, information-sharing, and networking – all from the comfort of your home. Hear from an impressive line-up of plenary speakers including author David Quammen, who predicted a severe pandemic event in his 2012 book, Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic. Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in breakout sessions, visit virtual exhibit booths and win prizes!
