PNIG Name Change to FCNIG

We are excited to announce the approval of our name change to Faith Community Nursing Interest Group. Through the One Member One Vote, our membership approved it by a 95% vote. RNAO have given us approval to implement the name change, so watch for this to happen on our website and RNAO and interest group websites. An article will appear in the next RN Journal, describing how we hope this will increase our membership and our capacity to influence wholistic nursing care reflecting the diversity of faith communities in our society.

16th AGM News and Report

AGM News and Report

Click on "Executive" for your 2017-2018 executive.

The AGM took place in the St. James Cathedral Centre, a convenient and pleasant location for this years meeting. Attendance was lower than expected but this could be the result of the date change. The executive has decided once again to hold next years meeting to coincide with RNAO's AGM and at the same location. We would like to get feed back from you about this decision and look for ways to make it possible for more to be present.
