/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - Ontario Nurses' Association President to
Visit Pembroke Nurses/

PEMBROKE, ON, May 3 /CNW/ - Ontario Nurses' Association (ONA) President Linda Haslam-Stroud, RN will be in Pembroke tomorrow to visit registered nurses and tour Miramichi Lodge as part of Nursing Week celebrations.

Haslam-Stroud will be joined by ONA Vice-President Anne Clark, RN for a tour of the facility. The two will meet with ONA members from 11:30 am to 4:00 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.

While media may not attend the meeting, Haslam-Stroud is available for interviews pre- and post the event.

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.
