RICHMOND HILL, ON, May 9, 2012 /CNW/ - Ontario Nurses' Association (ONA) President Linda Haslam-Stroud, RN will meet with front-line nurses from York Central Hospital tomorrow tomorrow as part of Nursing Week 2012.
Haslam-Stroud will attend visit with the RNs from noon to 2 pm.
Nursing Week is held each year to coincide with the birthday of nurse Florence Nightingale. ONA has chosen the theme "Value the Invaluable" for Nursing Week 2012, and Haslam-Stroud will be reminding members and the public to recognize that dollar for dollar, nurses are the best value in health care today. Nurses are under more pressure than ever as austerity measures squeeze health care budgets.
