OTTAWA, May 2 /CNW/ - Ontario Nurses' Association (ONA) President Linda Haslam-Stroud, RN will be in Ottawa tomorrow to visit registered nurses at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario as part of Nursing Week celebrations.
Haslam-Stroud will be joined by ONA Vice-President Anne Clark, RN for an early site visit. The two will meet with ONA members from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Though Nursing Week doesn't officially commence until May 10, Haslam-Stroud will travel the province both during the week leading up to Nursing Week and for several days following it.
ONA's theme for Nursing Week 2010 is "Celebrate our Nurses: The Heart of Health Care" and her visit is intended to do that. Despite large nursing cuts across the province, this is a week to celebrate the skills and professionalism our nurses bring to health care.
ONA is the union representing 55,000 registered nurses and allied health professionals, as well as more than 12,000 nursing student affiliates providing care in hospitals, long-term care facilities, public health, the community, clinics and industry.
