I believe nurses are leaders who advocate and deliver health through evidence informed practice. I believe above all, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners and student nurses need to stand together in order for our voices to be heard and that our actions will achieve a healthier world for all.

Since my values match with the mission, values and goals of RNAO, I am submitting my name forward for the Board Representative for Region 7.
