We thought you would appreciate this YouTube video:  Dr. Laurie Gottlieb on Strengths-Based Nursing »


Last year, we created a Word Cloud, which really puts into perspective the ideas provided to us by our participants. We want to do this again this year and we need YOUR input.

Strengths-Based Nursing is an attitude, a mindset, a set of values that guide how one sees the world, makes decisions and takes actions.

When entering your word, please think about questions such as, “What makes your unit special?” “What do you do best?” “How can you create healthy and productive environments (for patients, coworkers, students)?

The question we would like you to answer is:

What strengths do you admire in your fellow Nurses?

Please take a minute to input your Words for the Word Cloud »



It is with great pleasure that we, the members of the Planning and Advisory Committee, invite you to attend the 2013 edition of the Nursing Explorations Series, entitled Strengths-Based Nursing: Practice, Education and Leadership, at the Palais des congrès de Montréal (Montreal Convention Centre) on Thursday, November 14 from 7am to 5pm.
