REGION 7 IN ACTION: QPOR

QPOR is an initiative hosted by RNAO as an opportunity for Nurse leaders to meet with political officials to adapt positions that strengthen public, not-for-profit healthcare and improve access to Health For All. With the RNAO platform Why Your Health Matters, complete with practical and concrete recommendations to facilitate adequate and sustainable healthcare, Region 7 executives and members reached out to meet their local MPPs. 

Ryerson Membership Fair

On Friday, November 1st, the Region 7 Executive had a great opportunity to welcome nursing students at a membership fair hosted by Ryerson and NSO. We welcomed students from Centennial, George Brown and Ryerson University and engaged them to join, renew and connect with RNAO and Region 7. 

The entire event was a success and we thank NSO, RNAO and Ryerson University for hosting an afternoon of collaboration, networking, and sharing. Our executive certainly values the involvement of nursing students in our professional organization so keep an eye out for future events!
