ONA Seeking Candidates for Recent Graduate Board Position

At the 2016 House of Delegates, a bylaws amendment was approved to change the composition of the ONA Board of Directors to include one director position designated for a recent graduate of a RN licensure program. This change allows the Board of Directors to appoint a recent graduate director to the Board until the 2017 elections.

As such, ONA is seeking nurse leaders who are interested in serving on the ONA Board of Directors and using their experiences as a new nurse in the profession to help guide the organization.

Eligible candidates for the recent graduate director position must have received original RN licensure within the last five (5) years. You can read the specific bylaws language regarding this position below.

When you submit a Talent Bank & Consent to Serve form, we will check to make sure you meet all the requirements for being a director and contact you about next steps in the process.

We would like to receive forms from all interested nurses by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31.

If you have questions, please contact Kathy Gannett at gannett@oregonrn.org.

Thank you for your interest in ONA leadership positions.
