Women’s College Hospital receives Agency Recognition Award from the Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing

Since it began a century ago, Women’s College Hospital (WCH) has had a passion and dedication for the nursing profession, and has cultivated a supportive and knowledgeable learning environment. What’s more, since we became an independent ambulatory care hospital in 2006 we have continued to excel in our nursing practice and education within our unique mandate. That’s why the Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing (COUPN) honoured WCH’s leadership in ambulatory education with an Agency Recognition Award at their fourth annual COUPN Awards ceremony.

The annual awards are presented to exceptional nursing faculty, staff, students and health program partners from across Ontario who have made significant contributions to nursing education. Each year 10 prizes are awarded in the areas of teaching excellence, teaching innovation, student excellence and contribution to nursing education.

“What a wonderful honour for Women’s College Hospital,” said Jane Mosley, chief nursing executive/health disciplines and professional affairs. “To be recognized not only for our nurses’ ability to provide exceptional care, but also for their ability to teach others how to provide this one-of-a-kind care is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all our nurses.”

Along with Women’s College Hospital’s agency recognition, two individuals also received awards:

  • Margaret Saari, nursing student at WCH Family Practice, received the Excellence in Professional Nursing Practice at the Undergraduate Student Level Award
  • Sunita Coelho, charge nurse, Wound Care Centre, received the Preceptor Recognition Award

“Being recognized in this way truly solidifies our dedication to education within an ambulatory setting,” added Mosley. “Ambulatory care is the way of the future and we’re proud to be a leader in both practice and education.”
