RPNAO is seeking input about the new RPN Innovation Fund!  You are invited to come and share your ideas about how we can best use the Innovation Fund to support optimization of the RPN role in Ontario now and into the future.  As well, you have the opportunity to join us for a nursing Role Clarity Workshop offered in combination with the Innovation Fund Focus Group. 

Background information about the RPN Innovation Fund may be found here https://www.rpnao.org/content/rpn-innovation-fund                      

The Role Clarity Workshop includes an overview of RPN-focused research and factors that support or hinder RPNs working to full scope of practice.  This interactive session provides practical strategies that can be applied across all practice settings and in nursing programs and will help you to understand:

·      Myths and misconceptions of the RPN role

·      How to refocus the discussion to patient care needs

·      How to navigate overlapping scopes of practice


Who Should Attend?

RPNs, RNs, Employers of RPNs, Nursing program faculty, Nursing/Professional Practice Leaders, Health service planners

The Role Clarity Workshop is $60 per person or FREE when you participate in an Innovation Fund Focus Group!  As well, travel grants* are available to RPNs** for Focus Group participation.

*Reimbursement for costs of economy travel to the closest session to your home/work and accommodation at the session venue (Maximum 2 nights with travel documentation)
