Nurses launch radio ads

Barrie Advance, November 24, 2010 Ontario - The Ontario Nurses’ Association has launched a radio-ad campaign talking about the value of nursing staff. “We know, and research has proven that RNs are the best value for the health care system,” said ONA president Linda Haslam-Stroud. The message is aimed at getting the province to realize nurses provide the best quality of care for the money. “For way too long, our members have seen their profession portrayed by health care leaders as another expenditure on the spreadsheet,” Haslam-Stroud said. The ads began airing on Barrie radio stations Monday.
