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 allows students to sit it 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 September 17th to September 20th, 2014. Participants must attend from September 17th to September 19th. The session on September 20th is optional. More details and the registration form will be available in July 2014.
