RNAO Board of Directors (BOD) Student Placements take place in the winter, spring and fall. The goal of the placements is to expose nursing students in RN programs to RNAO’s operations, initiatives and strategic direction; and critical issues in nursing and health care.
Each placement begins with a full day of RNAO orientation when students meet with RNAO staff members from various departments. Students have plenty of opportunity to discuss and ask questions about departmental responsibilities.
The remaining two or three days of the placement allow students to sit in on high-level RNAO meetings with the Board of Directors and attend other gatherings like the RNAO Assembly, Annual General Meeting, RNAO's Annual Queen's Park Day, Interest Group Chairs Meeting and Chapter Presidents Meeting. Events may differ depending on the time of year.
To attend the BOD Student Placement, a student must be an RNAO Undergraduate Nursing Student Associate in good standing. Students not already RNAO associate members may apply for associate membership concurrently.
The next BOD Student Placement takes place from Wednesday, February 25th, to Saturday, February 28th, 2015. Participants must attend from February 25th to February 27th. The session on February 28th is optional. Details and registration will be available soon.
