Get involved! Take YOUR MPP to work this year

Every May for the past 16 years during National Nursing Week in Canada, registered nurses from across Ontario invite MPPs of all political stripes to experience a day in their working life.

Dubbed Take Your MPP to Work, this province-wide event hosted by the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario’s (RNAO), provides politicians an opportunity to go behind the scenes to see what a typical day looks like in the life of a Registered Nurse (RN). MPPs shadow nurses in order to better understand the roles RNs play in the province’s health-care system, learn first-hand what needs to be done to improve it, and show our top decision-makers how integral RNs are to the province’s health-care system.

The visits coincide with Florence Nightingale’s birthday.

This year, why not consider getting involved? Contact Shelley Martell at the RNAO to get the help you need to set up a successful visit.
