    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).

    A request for proposal (RFP) for the upcoming Advanced Clinical Practice Fellowship (ACPF) was released Nov. 3. RNAO is proud to once again offer this unique opportunity for RNs to develop their clinical practice.

    This self-directed learning experience will enhance a nurse's leadership and best practice implementation skills, while making a difference in their workplace. The 450-hour fellowship can be completed in either 12 or 20 weeks.

    RNAO partnered with six public health sites across Ontario -- including four Best Practice Spotlight Organizations® -- for an exciting initiative to improve health and wellbeing for the province's young people. The Youth Mental Health and Addictions Champions (YMHAC) project will focus on mental health promotion, stigma reduction, and substance misuse prevention.
