About this Event:

RNAO is thrilled to announce the inaugural nurse practitioner (NP) institute, taking place March 19 -21, 2019 at the White Oaks Resort in Niagara-on-the-Lake. This institute is a two-and-a-half day in-residence experience that allows for a deep dive into issues relevant to NPs, networking with NP colleagues from across the province, and hearing engaging and exciting presentations from NPs and top health system and policy leaders.


Given the importance of NPs' work to RNAO, we are providing sponsorship for 25 spots on a first come, first served basis. Sponsorship will cover the full cost of the institute. Participants are only responsible for their own travel costs. Priority will be givien to NPs and NP students working in primary care, mental health and addiction, Indigenous health, and long-term care. To be eligible for one of these spots, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. be a member of RNAO
  2. be an NP or an NP student (currently enrolled in an NP program)
  3. have been unsuccessful in accessing sponsorship from your organization
