” Hello Nursing faculties, team captains, volunteers and administration,

We appreciate your patience as we discussed with our McMaster administration the status of this years Nursing Games in lieu of the COVID-19 virus. While our core team and volunteers were incredibly eager to host you, amid the current state of travel in relation to the virus and precautionary warning being issued by government and health officials, it is with heavy hearts that the Ontario Nursing Games 2020 are officially cancelled for March 21st. We appreciate all of the hard work you have put into organizing your teams, and we hope to have the incredible opportunity to host you next year! 

Our Core Nursing Games Planning team will be in touch with captains regarding refunds for registration fees within the week. Please email us if you have any questions or concerns. We love our nursing family and hope to see you all at next year’s games!  “

Nursing Games is an annual event that brings together nursing schools from across Ontario to compete in athletic, academic and spirit competitions emphasizing teamwork and collaboration. It is a great opportunity to get acquainted with future colleagues, refine clinical skills, and solidify evidence-based nursing knowledge.

Traditionally, one nursing school hosts this event. This year, McMaster University would be hosting Nursing Games 2020 at McMaster’s main campus.
