The RNAO Board of Directors (BOD) Student Placement takes place three times per year – in the winter, spring and fall. The goal of the placement 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 offers students the opportunity to participate in general RNAO orientation, an RNAO Board of Directors meeting, and other RNAO-related events.
RNAO orientation provides a forum for students to meet with RNAO staff from various departments. There is plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion.
Other RNAO-related events include the RNAO Assembly, Annual General Meeting, Annual Queen's Park Day, Interest Group Chairs Meeting and Chapter Presidents Meeting. Events 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, September 21 to Saturday, September 24, 2016 and includes the following:
Wednesday, September 21 - RNAO Orientation
Thursday, September 22 & Friday, September 23 - RNAO Board of Directors Meetings
Saturday, September 24 - RNAO Assembly
More information and registration will be available soon.
