RNAO Board of Directors (BOD) Student Placements take place in 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, 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 is scheduled for Wednesday, September 25, to Friday, September 27, 2013.
Check back in August 2013 for details and a link to the registration form.
