About this event:

As part of our Nursing Week celebrations, the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) will host an online discussion between nurses actively engaged in politics.


  • A panel discussion, sharing thoughts and insights about careers that included both nursing and politics.
  • Panellists to talk about why they transitioned from nursing to politics, the connections between nursing and politics, and the transferability of nursing skills to politics. 
  • Q&A

We hope you can join us for this discussion and be inspired by nurses who have chosen this path to lead change and advocacy.
