Erika Juhasz – Policy and Political Action ENO

My name is Erika, and I am your Political Action and Policy Officer for the RNAO Middlesex-Elgin chapter! I have over five years of experience working with municipal, provincial and federal advocacy campaigns, so I am very passionate about this role and excited to support our chapter's nurses in this capacity.

You can find me travelling around the world when I'm not working or studying.

She graduated from the Western-Fanshawe BSCN program in 2019, and currently works in spinal cord injury rehabilitation at Parkwood as a bed side nurse. She has discovered a passion for rehabilitation nursing, patient centered care, and teaching taking on IP nursing students as a preceptor. She hopes to expand her nursing experience into palliative care, mental health, and harm reduction in the future. Nicole has been involved in the RNAO since her first year of nursing school as a student member, and going on to be the Fanshawe and Western student liaison for the Chapter and Western Fanshawe Students' Association in the 2 years following.
