Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario

Newsroom

Are you interested in speaking to the media?

RNAO values and encourages speaking out for nursing and speaking out for health. That’s why, RNAO is calling on members to speak out and share your experiences and stories to the media to shed light on what nurses are going through during this pandemic. 

RNAO often receives media requests for nurses and nursing students working in different sectors and areas of the province. Requests we have received include topics such as the impact of COVID-19 in the emergency and ICU departments, nursing understaffing and the burnout and stress many front line nurses are experiencing.

In response, RNAO has created a media directory for members to consider submitting their name. As part of the directory, you will be given opportunities as they come to RNAO to speak to the media about your sector/specialty or your experiences as a nurse. 

If interested, please fill out this survey with your information and details about your areas of expertise. An RNAO staff member will be in touch. 

RNAO will also help prepare members for these interviews with tips, example questions, mock interviews and advice, if needed. As part of the directory, you will be welcome to RNAO’s media training webinars as well. 

If you would like to learn more, please email communications officer/writer, Victoria Alarcon at valarcon@RNAO.ca.
