NURSING WEEK 2016 ONE GOAL, ONE TEAM, ONE VISION
Happy Nursing Week! As the President of SEIU Healthcare’s Nursing Division, my job is to serve as our union’s lead on initiatives in the delivery of healthcare by nurses in Ontario. During my time in this role I have had the opportunity to meet with many nurses and hear how you want the nursing division to serve you.
To that end, we have focused on professional practice issues, scope of practice clarity, and collaboration amongst RPNs, RNs and Nurse Practitioners. This understanding and collaboration is vital for us to successfully tackle issues like workplace violence . As part of our commitment to ensuring that SEIU Healthcare members have the tools and resources to support professional practice requirements, SEIU Healthcare continues to innovate and provides: • Free mandatory PLP insurance to our member nurses • Annual Quality Assurance Modules - “RN and RPN Practice: The Client, the Nurse and the Environment” is now available as are modules from previous years
• Opportunities to develop as a leader through our new Leadership Academy • Campaigns to educate the public on the role of SEIU Healthcare Nurses • Free e-Learning modules , and more!
It is very important to me that the direction we take comes from our membership. I would like to encourage you to take a short survey and give us feedback about your experience as a nurse. Bring your voice to the table with thousands of nurses who want to influence our roles in healthcare.
Thank you for all that you do! Jackie Walker Nursing Division President
