Past President of RNAO and CNA Judith Shamian: Candidate for ICN President

The RNAO is throwing their support behind Judith Shamian, past president of RNAO and CNA, as candidate for president of the International Council of Nurses (ICN).

If elected, we are confident that Judith will bring unparalleled leadership to ICN. Over the years, Canadian nurses have held a wide range of leadership roles at ICN, but it has been 40 years since the last Canadian president.
