About the Heather Keith Award

The award recipient will reflect attributes of the award’s namesake Heather Keith.  Heather’s significant career in advanced practice nursing has focused on providing and supporting primary health care services in emergency, family medicine, and in rural and northern settings.  Through her various roles, she has mentored and empowered nursing colleagues to achieve high levels of competence.

Throughout her career, she has innovated change that has promoted the health and safety of community members.  Heather has influenced the development of the NP role by participating in many SRNA committees such as the Legislation and Bylaws committee and was the first NP voted in on the SRNA council as a member at large.  In 2001, Heather established NPOS which united NPs in their goal to advance the NP role.
