    A number of Toronto-area hospitals have engaged in medical tourism – raising millions of dollars by actively seeking and treating international patients on a pay-for-care basis. RNAO worries this represents a shift to for-profit health care, creating a system where those who pay access care ahead of others.

    RNAO along with other nursing associations led a dialogue on nursing, health care, and evidence-based practice at the International Council of Nurses (ICN) 2015 Conference held in Seoul.

    The Association had five presentations and two posters -- all of which received extensive accolades from the international community.

    About 7,000 nurses and nursing students from 112 countries participated in the four-day conference, building relationships and learning about the nursing workforce.

    RNAO members Christina Morgan of Barrie and Mira Sta Ana of Guelph are the lucky winners of the Advent Mortgage Services draw. They each win an Apple iPad mini.

    Members who were not able to participate in the contest are still eligible for an exclusive discount by Advent that can save them more than $800 in interest on a typical $350,000 five-year mortgage. Advent is the number one ranked mortgage broker in Canada by volume so they can negotiate lower rates than you can.
