RNAO is devastated by the tragic passing of recently graduated RN and RNAO member Pradeepa Karunananda and her parents. The family of three was killed in a tragic car accident in Milton, Ontario on Saturday, June 19, 2021. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the incident.
We are delighted to invite all RNAO members, other health professionals, and members of the public to our 96th Annual General Meeting (AGM) taking place on June 24 – 26, 2021. The theme for this year’s AGM is Protecting Ontarians and Leading Change: Nurses and RNAO during COVID-19.
