KINGSTON, ON, April 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Ontario Nurses' Association (ONA) President Linda Haslam-Stroud, RN will visit Kingston this Thursday, April 14 to meet with front-line registered nurses (RNs) from Providence Care-St. Mary's of the Lake and Mental Health Services.

The event will be held at the Donald Gordon Centre in Kingston from 2 to 8 pm.

ONA is a strong advocate for the issues impacting the province's nurses. Most recently, ONA has spoken out about heavy workloads due to registered nurse cuts that impact patient care, workplace violence and the exclusion of nurses from new legislation making PTSD a workplace illness.
