About the exhibit

Over the course of the last year more than 50 nurses within our CIUSSS have volunteered to share their stories with us. This exhibit, the first of many projects, provides a glimpse into nurses’ experiences during COVID.  We sincerely thank the nurses who shared their experiences and in particular, the nine nurses whose stories are featured in this exhibit.  If you are a nurse and would like to submit your own story, please follow this link.

We would also like to acknowledge the support of the McGill Nursing Collaborative for Education and Innovation in Patient and Family–Centered Care (Newton Foundation / Jewish General Hospital Foundation).

Also, thank you to the many people listed below who have helped bring this project together.
