RNAO statement on the passing of Stefanie Van Nguyen, RN

RNAO grieves the loss of Stefanie Van Nguyen, a young RN committed to the nursing profession, her family, friends and her partner Jason Parreno. Stefanie left us way too soon. RNAO hopes that Stefanie’s kindness, selflessness and giving nature are remembered forever and serve as a lesson for others to help brighten the world. As Jason mentioned to RNAO’s CEO Doris Grinspun, “the world is a darker place without her.” Mr. Parreno has organized a fundraiser on GoFundMe to support Stephanie’s parents. We encourage our members and readers to donate.
