Sally Thorne, RN

Dr. Sally Thorne is a respected nursing leader, academic and sought-after expert on health and public policy. She is passionately committed to a strong and effective nursing professional association policy voice and to enriching the coordinated contributions of BC’s three nursing organizations in building a strong, healthy provincial nursing system.

As a former Director of the UBC School of Nursing, Sally has had a hand in teaching and supporting generations of RNs/NPs and she remains an approachable and supportive mentor across nursing careers.
