Red River College is proud to congratulate Karen Wall, Chair of Nursing, on her recently-awarded Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

Wall was one of 30 individuals so honoured by the Canadian Nurses Association, who were given the medals by the Governor-General to recognize RNs who have demonstrated a strong commitment and dedication to the nursing profession and to health care in Canada.

She was first honoured at the College of Registered Nurses of Manitoba’s centennial gala on Feb. 15, and received her medal during a ceremony in Ottawa on March 5.
