And to our NEW RNAO-CTNIG website!
Please note that this site is still under construction! Please pardon anything that seems a little 'off' while we perfect it.
There was a lot of excitement recently with the 10th Anniversary celebration. We all worked hard to plan it and bring it together for November 11th.
At the celebration we presented a the first CTNIG Award of Excellence to a deserving candidate - one of our founders and First CTNIG President ...and the best part is that she did not know what was coming!!
The RNAO-CTNIG is a professional support group for Registered Nurses practicing Complementary Therapies (CT). Complementary therapies are being used by Canadians more each day, and starting to become a part of health care bit by bit. More nurses are using CT in their practice, many find them to be a valuable tool in their toolbox. Nurses in the growing field of CT benefit from sharing their experiences with one another and developing common strategies and it is our hope that through the CTNIG this will be accomplished.
The CTNIG is assisting the RNAO of fulfilling its mandate of "speaking out for health, speaking out for nursing." We are doing this by supporting CT nurses and those clients who are seeking CT, by acting as a resource for anyone, and through raising the profile of nurses who practice Complementary Therapies we hope to bring to light the role CT can play in the health of our province. It is also through the support and sharing of research we aim to integrate CT in care.
