RNAO NRIG fall 2022 newsletter

Posted on Sept. 8, 2022, 2:17 p.m.

Hello NRIG members, 

I hope you all enjoyed the last week of summer. Please see attached our fall newsletter. 

I am thrilled to welcome new NRIG executive members who are committed to serving you! I welcome you to read about them in this issue of the NRIG newsletter!

For the first time, NRIG now has four student representatives:

  • Kieran Blake (Nipissing University)
  • Caitlin Cosgrove (Toronto Metropolitan University)
  • Connor Kucharic (Trent University)
  • Claire Stather (Toronto Metropolitan University)

The engagement of nursing students is critical to building research capacity – and this group of students provides NRIG with the widest geographical reach in our history. Given an expanded ability to reach more nurses and nursing students in Ontario, our current nursing workforce has the capacity to lead the change needed to move our health system forward.

With more student representation, NRIG will be increasing our outreach and promotion this year. We'll host an inaugural three-way university-wide student competition. We'll also be offering regular research webinars in the form of guest speakers, panels and "In conversation..." series that will appeal to all members.

NRIG is a forum to promote and amplify nursing research. If you are interested in presenting or sharing your work with our members, fill out your information at this link: https://forms.gle/EPBdRF6UzhzHQmM77. A representative of NRIG will then contact you by email to confirm the details you provide. 

NRIG is here to support your research needs! Reach out and let us know how we can support you in either learning more about research or helping you share your findings with our community. And, if there is content you want us to start developing, please let us know.
