Take Your MPP To Work

Resource Type: 
Political Action

Each year during Nursing Week, we encourage RNs, NPs and nursing students to take part in our annual Take Your MPP To Work event.

Taking your local member of provincial parliament (MPP) to your workplace provides him/her with a first-hand look at the skills and expertise needed to provide high quality health care to Ontarians.

Take Your MPP To Work kicks off the beginning of Nursing Week (May 8-14, 2017) and continues through to the end of June to ensure each MPP has the opportunity to go to work with an RN or NP.

The event has enjoyed huge success with premiers, cabinet ministers, opposition leaders and backbench MPPs participating and joining RNs, and NPs as they work in hospitals, community health centres, family health teams, in long-term care, and during home care visits.

If you would like to participate in Take Your MPP To Work, please contact Annie Ytterberg (1-800-268-7199 ext 214) or email her aytterberg@RNAO.ca to learn more and to get involved in this popular advocacy event.
