Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario


Keeping the Nursing Week momentum going...

During Nursing Week, media conferences around the province highlighted the knowledge of nurses and their focus on evidence-based practice.

Health-care facilities that successfully implement multiple guidelines receive special recognition from RNAO as Best Practice Spotlight Organizations (BPSO).
Nurses representing the new cohort of BPSOs revealed how they deliver superior patient care and support their organizations to become leaders in clinical excellence.

As part of Nursing Week 2012, Take Your MPP to Work initiative, now in its 12th year, allowed nurses from health-care organizations across the province take politicians to work.

More than 50 members of provincial parliament (MPPs) shadowed RNs at home care visits, hospital rounds, in nursing homes, public health units and community health centres, to gain more insight into the expertise of Ontario’s registered nurses.

See the complete list of events, including Take Your MPP to Work; and images from events from across the province.

While Nursing Week might be over, the momentum remains.
