BC Nurses’ Union Celebrates 43rd Anniversary

May 31, 2024
Annual quiz tests members' knowledge of union milestones and connection between safety and minimum nurse-to-patient ratios

On June 11, 1981, two hundred nurses went to the founding convention of the BC Nurses’ Union at the Empress Hotel in Victoria. Each year since then, BCNU recognizes the anniversary of its formation on June 11.

Anniversary celebrations continue this year with the annual BCNU Day quiz. All members are invited to test their knowledge of the union’s history and the important connection between nurses’ occupational health and safety and the successful implementation of minimum nurse-to-patient ratios.

For a chance to win, log in to the BCNU Member Portal and complete the BCNU Day quiz starting June 1. One winning entry from each of BCNU’s 16 regions will be randomly drawn from all completed quiz entries and one member from each region will receive an Apple watch!

The BCNU Day quiz is available from June 1-11, 2024. Winners will be announced in eNews at the end of June.
