The National Association of Catholic Nurses – Canada [NACN-Canada] is established to support and strengthen the vocation of nurses and other health professionals within the apostolic tradition of the Catholic Church. It is a community that seeks the guidance of the Holy Spirit through an ever-wider involvement of health professionals who wish to align their practice with Catholic teaching. It holds that Catholic nurses and other health professionals practice their professions as a vocation anchored in the Word, nourished through the sacraments, and in personal witness to Christ, bearing testimony to Him by his or her life & professional practice.
