While the number of nurses who are male is on the rise, the vast majority are still women. On International Women’s Day, we celebrate McGill Nursing women who are making major strides for nursing, impacting lives, and effecting change in health and health care.
Every year on March 8 since 1975, International Women’s Day is marked by celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the globe. The day continues to be a call to action for making gender parity a worldwide reality.
It’s no secret: when it comes to health and health care, nurses play a huge role. Providing 90% of health care services in the world, nurses have always have been at the forefront of change in health care and public health. No other health care professional has such a broad and far-reaching role, and the vast majority of nurses are still women.
On International Women’s Day 2018, we are shining the spotlight on some of the accomplished and inspiring McGill Nursing faculty, who are making major strides in the nursing profession, making a difference in people’s lives, and effecting change in health and health care.
From maternal and child health, community and Indigenous health, oncology and caregiver quality of life, to digital health and technology, McGill Nursing faculty are leading the charge in nursing research, academic excellence and community outreach.
