Message from the COUPN Chair
The 14th annual Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing (COUPN) Awards celebrate the dedication, innovation, passion and professionalism of the students, faculty, researchers and preceptors in Ontario’s nursing programs.
As the COVID-19 pandemic enters its second year, the resilience, dedication, and passion of Ontario’s nurses and nurse educators is on display each and every day as they provide exceptional care to their patients, and selfless leadership to their teams.
It is a pleasure, through these awards, to be able to shine a light on the outstanding achievements of this year’s recipients in teaching and student excellence, scholarship, and contributions to nursing education.
The awards, and the honorees, also demonstrate the important role played by Ontario’s universities in helping deliver the high-quality health care that enables Ontarians to lead healthier and longer lives.
Thank you for your support as we celebrate the accomplishments of the 2021 honorees.
Dr. Linda Johnston
