ONA Nurses Attend NFN Labor Academy

The 2011 National Federation of Nurses (NFN) Labor Academy was held Friday, May 13, 2011 through Sunday, May 15, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. Each of the NFN member states, which includes Montana, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon and Washington, sponsored ten (10) members to attend educational sessions focused on workplace violence. Nurses learned to identify the incidence and risk for abuse against nurses and learned techniques for gaining strength and unity to affect positive changes in the facilities we work.

Thank you to nurse participants, Ateusa Salemi (Good Shepherd Medical Center), Hallie Scott (St Alphonsus: Ontario), Glenda Peters (Providence St. Vincent), Pat Cirello (Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center), Sherry Craton (Providence Seaside), Cindy Kistler (Tuality Community), Katie Renken (Sacred Heart Medical Center), Erin Shawn (Multnomah County), Fran Spiker (Rogue Valley Medical Center), Kristi Till (Sacred Heart Home Health), and presenter Susan Walters (Portland Providence Medical Center), for representing ONA at the Labor Academy and to everyone else who made the event a great success.
