Did you know...a registered nurse will walk 6 kilometers during an average 12 hour shift?
In those 6 kilometers, nurses across Alberta are saving lives - 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. At every stage of life and through every step in care, a registered nurse is there supporting YOU, your family and all Albertans.
