Win-Win 100 - RNAO is sending members to Helsinki, Finland!


RNAO is turning 100 in 2025! To celebrate, we’re giving $5,000 cash toward attendance at the International Council of Nurses Congress in Helsinki, Finland (June 9 -13, 2025) to RNAO members who recruits 100 new members by April 30, 2025.

Don’t forget about RNAO’s ongoing recruitment rewards. For every new RN/NP you recruit, you will earn a $20 RNAO credit. For every undergraduate nursing or internationally educated nursing student you recruit, you will earn a $5 gift certificate. If you recruit five new RN/NP members, your membership for next year is free.

Here are some easy ways RNAO helps you recruit members:

  • Get your nursing colleagues and friends to scan your personalized QR code, which you can find by logging into your account
  • Share your referral link (also available in your account)
  • Provide your RNAO membership number to your peers so they can include it in their online registration form

Both the link and the QR code will bring new members directly to with your RNAO membership number automatically populated for a seamless recruitment process.

Special rules regarding $5,000 “Win-Win 100” prize
