Celebrating 90 Years


    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's top priorities were heard loud and clear at the Ontario legislature on Feb. 26, as more than 130 RN, NPs and nursing students engaged with politicians at the association's 15th Queen's Park Day. A dynamic group of RNAO board of directors and assembly members, political action ENOs, and student leaders brought the voice of 41,500 RNAO members to Queen's Park.

    Your chance to come see your professional association at work is almost here. RNAO's 2015 annual general meeting (AGM) will be held April 16-18 at the Hilton Toronto.

    All RNAO members are invited to attend. Be sure to take this exciting opportunity to network with your fellow nurses, and hear from RNAO's president, CEO and board of directors.

    This year's AGM is a big one. RNAO turns 90 at the event, and we'll celebrating accordingly. Make sure you register online to join in this important milestone.
