    With two exciting opportunities available, there’s never been a better time to adopt RNAO’s acclaimed best practice guidelines (BPGs) within your organization. RNAO is inviting proposals from interested and eligible Ontario health-care organizations to join our roster of Best Practice Spotlight Organizations (BPSO).

    As Canadians, we value our publicly funded, not-for-profit health system, where everyone is given equal access to care. To protect this system, RNAO stands at the forefront of a movement to ban a profit-driven practice that threatens the foundation of medicare. We have created a coalition including Doctors for Medicare, the Association of Ontario Midwives, and the Association of Ontario Health Centres who all believe medical tourism runs counter to the spirit of Medicare.

    Help drive the future of nursing and health care in Ontario by joining an RNAO committee. There are multiple openings on four different board committee covering topics including nursing research, education, policy and practice.

    Members in good standing interested in a two-year term on one of these committees are invited to submit their letters of interest and relevant experience by the Dec. 15, 2014 deadline.
