Queen’s Park Day returns on Feb. 21

RNs, NPs and nursing students are once again taking their message to political leaders.

Celebrating the 19th Queen’s Park Day, RNAO members and MPPs will meet to discuss important nursing, health and health-care issues while learning about the political process on Feb. 21.

The topics for this year’s event include:

- reclaiming the role of the RN – stopping RN replacement and forging ahead with Independent RN prescribing
- increasing access to care by fully utilizing NPs and adequately compensating NPs
- strengthening primary care
- transforming long-term care to keep residents healthy and safe
- universal pharmacare
- social determinants of health
- protecting our environment to improve health for all

Members will also have the opportunity to attend Question Period and hear directly from party leaders and health critics regarding their views on nursing, health care and the social and environmental determinants of health.

If you are an interested member wanting to participate, please contact Peta-gay (PG) Batten at pgbatten@RNAO.ca or 416-408-5613.
