On May 14th, Region 7 held its annual Nursing Week even at Pappas Grill. Nurses and colleagues joined for an afternoon of networking and fun. MPP Peter Tabuns joined us to congratulate nurses for the excellent work that they do all year around.
Thank you nurses for your passion, and your relentless efforts to advocate for health and nursing. We are proud of what we do!
Region 7's Workplace Liaison, Andria Alleyne and associate Lavern Smith hosted a Nurses' Week Pizza Lunch at the Scarborough CCAC Branch on May 11, 2016. Lavern teamed up with the ONA Repesentative to host the lunch. The event was a great success with 50-75 staff in attendance and an RNAO memberhip as the door prize.
Thank you Andria and Laverne for a wonderful event!
Region 7 is a proud supporter of Autism Teenage Partnership (ATP), a youth led initiative connecting teens living with Autism Spectrum Disorder. They provide weekly programs that enable individuals with ASD to "express themselves through games, arts and crafts, team-building activities, social discussion, and excursions into the community."
On this year's AGM, Region 7 was awarded with Region of the Year! Thanks to Lorraine Telford, our past Policy & Political Action Executive for the nomination. We are so excited for this recognition, and will continue to serve our region and our members!
A special shout out goes to our executive members who work tirelessly to grow RNAO membership and engagement in Toronto East. Thank YOU to our members for coming out to all of our events and participating in our region activities. We look forward to growing and engaging more in the years to come!
On Thursday, December 3rd, 2016 Region 7 held its 3rd Annual December Celebration. This event celebrates another year of accomplishments and strides within the nursing profession. It is a time to relax, reconnect, network and learn from one another. We were joined by a special guest, President Elect Carol Timmings. It was a night full of laughter, great food, great music and company.
If you missed our last December Celebration, please make sure you tune in and join us this year!
Region 7 fully supports the professional growth of nursing students. This year, we sponsored 3 nursing students, Jessica Crawford, Liam McBirnie, and Fatima Mazhar to attend the annual CNSA Conference in Sault St. Marie. We asked them to share a few words about their experience. Here are their reflections:
Nursing week is around the corner! Join other RNAO Region 7 peers as we celebrate another year of accomplishments and discuss issues at the heart of nursing. We will be joined by special guest MPP Peter Tabuns!
