Your Board of Directors is pleased to once again provide funding for 25 SUN members to attend the business portion of the RPNAS Annual Meeting on May 9, 2019 (afternoon only), at the Prince Albert Golf and Curling Club.
As RPNAS members you have the right and the ability to participate in your regulatory bodies' Annual Meeting. This is a great opportunity for you to bring your direct care experience and perspective into the discussion. SUN members provide a valuable lens about registered nurse practice from the perspective of the direct care provider. Your voice on what would make a difference to you in your practice are important messages for the RPNAS to hear and understand.
