The Optimizing the RPN Role Provincial Tour has come to an end!  A big Thank You! to everyone that attended one of the sessions on our 20-stop January to May 2017 journey around Ontario.  We met so many amazing nurses and gathered a great many perspectives ideas about how the RPN Innovation Fund can best be used to optimize the capacity of RPNs to contribute in innovative ways to excellent patient care and health system transformation.  

Background information about the RPN Innovation Fund may be found here     

As part of our ongoing engagement related to the RPN Innovation fund, we would like to invite you to complete our online survey.  The purpose of the survey is to build on the preliminary findings from our provinicial engagement tour and to explore more specifically some of the themes, expectations, and ideas that have emerged from this consultation.  Results from this survey will further inform how the Innovation fund can support optimizing the role of RPNs today and into the future.  The survey will take about 10-20 minutes to complete.  Your answers will remain anonymous and will be reported in aggregate form, with the exception of free text answers that will be seen only by RPNAO.  You will only be identified to RPNAO if you include identifying information in your answers.  RPNs and other stakeholders can all take this survey.  You can take it if you participated in one of the tour sessions, or if you did not attend a tour session.  All responses are valuable to us.  The survey link will be open until May 29.

Thank you for your time and input.  It will help to shape how RPNAO supports and advances the nursing profession.
