RNAO ends first busy week of Take Your MPP To Work LIVE
RNAO’s Take Your MPP To Work (TYMTW) LIVE provides members with the opportunity to meet virtually with their local MPP. The schedule of the first week, which ended yesterday, can be found here.
Launching during Nursing Week, this event gave an opportunity to share your experience with your MPP so they can better understand the depth of nursing practice challenges while caring for patients and communities throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since it began in 2000, TYMTW has grown to become an important political engagement event for RNAO members and MPPs alike. Premiers, cabinet ministers, opposition leaders and numerous MPPs, have gone to work with registered nurses and nurse practitioners in public health units, community health centres, family health teams, nurse practitioner-led clinics, hospitals, long-term care homes, and post-secondary institutions, among others.
