Remote Options for ONIG Education Events
We are currently in the process of exploring opportunities to host short education sessions remotely e.g. through a webinar format. We would love to hear from our members about whether this may be of interest to you, potential topics, timing etc. Please fill out the below short survey (approx. 1 min) to let us know your thoughts on this topic by December 13th, 2019.

Website Refresh
We plan to conduct a website refresh in the coming year. We will be reaching out to interested ONIG members soon to obtain feedback. Stay tuned as to how feedback can be provided.

ONIG Scholarship
ONIG is pleased to be offering a $1000 scholarship to support a Registered Nurse or Registered Practical Nurse who is enrolled in further education with a focus on informatics. This scholarship will be administered through the Registered Nurses Foundation of Ontario (RNFOO).

We wish everyone a wonderful holiday season,
