Welcome to the CAPWHN website!
Happy New Year to my colleagues in perinatal and women’s health nursing. As I use the New Year to reflect on my new position within CAPWHN, I think back to the many opportunities for professional growth I have gained through CAPWHN and I truly would not be the nurse I am today without the contacts, support and knowledge gained through my membership in CAPWHN. As the New Year is a time for many of us to make both personal and professional resolutions, I encourage you to think about your own professional growth and the value of membership in this vibrant organization. The New Year is a time to reinforce your commitment to CAPWHN by becoming involved at the Regional or National level. Consider joining a committee and working with other passionate individuals from across the country and become part of the voice for your specialty area of nursing.
One of our goals for this year is to increase our membership. Make it a resolution to recruit one new member to CAPWHN. With an increase in membership we will increase our visibility and influence at many levels across the country.
We are looking forward to seeing many of you at our National Conference being held this October in Regina, Saskatchewan. A very busy conference planning group is working hard to make this an exciting learning opportunity and a great time to network with your peers.
2014 boasts the fourth year of existence of CAPWHN. I am confident that this year will bring bigger and better things for our organization. Our passion and care for women and families health will lead us to great initiatives and I am excited for the future of our organization. Through your own active participation you will continue to reap the benefits of membership in CAPWHN and your own professional development.
I look forward to serving as your President this year. Please feel free to contact me with any comments, questions or concerns. We need to continue to make changes and improve for the benefit of our members. Please let me know what we can be doing for you as an organization.
