A Stanley Mission nurse has received a national award for excellence in health care.

Janet McKenzie, who is a member of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band, is one of three recipients of the Indigenous Services Canada Award of Excellence in Nursing.

McKenzie says she was caught of guard when she got the call that she had been selected for the award.

“It was surprising, I knew my nurse manager had nominated me for the award but it was a surprise to actually get the call to say, ‘You are of our recipients,’” she says.

McKenzie started out as a licensed practical nurse but went back to school and upgraded to a registered nurse in 2016.
