Celebrating a Passion for Compassion

How Nurse Rosetta Antonacci Does St. Mary’s Proud!

Congratulations to St. Mary’s own Rosetta Antonacci who truly stands out in the Profession of Nursing!

We want to share with you a recent article McGill University published featuring Rosetta Antonacci, and a thank-you letter from one of her students in reaction to the publication.

Many of you know Rosetta from her 32 years of specialized nursing in Oncology and Emergency at St. Mary’s where she was also Head Nurse on 5 South. Rosetta’s move from a clinical setting into the academic world was gradual yet pivotal to her current teaching role which focuses on her special brand of caring at the McGill Ingram School of Nursing.

Today, Rosetta plays an important role in McGill’s Department of Academic and University Affairs (the DAUER) and is also collaborating with our CIUSSS ODIM to promote healthy learning environments. She is also a member of St. Mary’s Board of Governors and the Committee for St. Mary’s “Modernization Project” to build 2 top floors. In 2016, Rosetta was recognized by the Ordre des infirmières et infirmiers du Québec (OIIQ) as a recipient of the Prix Jeanne Mance. Every day, our nurses dedicate themselves to our patients and their families, and make every effort to ensure a better quality of life. We know that our future is in good hands with a teacher like Rosetta whose students will continue to uphold our values and standards to provide the highest level of patient-centered healthcare.
