We are once again amid fall and along with fall comes the respiratory season and the uncertainty of the impact the season will have on the healthcare system this year. COVID-19 is on the rise and health human resources continues to be one the pressing issues organizations and the system are struggling with. 

Nursing Leadership development and sustainability of Nursing leaders also continues to threaten the critical support for the clinical staff in healthcare organizations. NLN.ON has a history of working collaboratively with RNAO to provide and shape the support needed by nursing leaders in the province.

NLN.ON continues to be actively involved in the RNAO Leadership and Management for Nurses program. A small group of NLN.ON board members were part of the development team with RNAO and continue to be engaged in the program as regular speakers and facilitators. As well, a call out to our membership assembled several speakers and facilitators. Thank you for responding to the call. Further information regarding the program is available through the RNAO website.

The strategic intention working groups have been active developing a membership survey, coordinating webinars, and promoting the research scholarships and educational bursaries to our members.

The Conference Committee have been working tirelessly to put together an exciting agenda and of course time to enjoy the sites while networking with your peers. We are looking forward to welcoming you in person to our annual conference in Niagara on the Lake April 15-16, 2024. More information can be found on the NLN.ON website.
