2016 ONA Statewide Elections

2016 ONA Statewide Elections

The future of the organization and the future of nursing are guided by nurses who choose to take an active role and make a difference. ONA is looking for those nurses who want to make a difference and advocate for the profession and our patients.

From the board of directors to the cabinets, every leadership role is important in shaping the future of nursing in Oregon and beyond.
