Dear OHNIG Member,
Hope the New Year 2017 is off to a great start!
Please consider adding OHNIG to your 2017 nursing efforts? OHNIG has many activities in progress. Here is your up-to-date "St
art of a New Year" Newsletter - November 1, 2016 to February 28, 2017.
mbers Input Needed
Your OHNIG leaders ask members to please support OHNIG "New Year" 2017 for Professional Practice Development and Public Education Campaign with your innovative nursing activities, views and input.
Several OHNIG Members attended the Annual General Meeting AGM webinar on November 19, 2016. For discussion purposes attendees were presented with 2016 research details, past "Year at a Glance" activities ... more
member attendees decided our primary target goals for 2017 is to focus on Professional Practice Development Education resources for members. We decided to ask input from our members. Very soon members will be sent a Member's Needs Survey (March 1 to August 2017). The goal is to get OHNIG members to identify their particular nursing practice needs to deliver the highest quality professional nursing care based on Primary Health Care PHC model of health care delivery for all people in all places.
The second half of the year would be focused on targeting Public Education Campaign highlighting the identified diversity of nursing work that Registered Nurses in Independent Practice deliver.

Members' Voices, September 2016 to December 2016 ...
"Reconnect Health Care to People Care?"
We ask current OHNIG members to reflect on the OHNIG past year's research and AGM members focus on professional practice recognition and then provide their perspectives on how their current nursing services can support this year's chosen theme, "Reconnect Health Care to People Care".
Our 2016 extensive research on Registered Nurses diversity of care enlightened us to ay new and innovative ways nurses are caring for people's health. Registered Nurses as client advocates assisting navigating the convoluted health care system to meet their client's needs.
The "New" expanded Registered Nurses scope of nursing practice deliver a broader modern health care to their clients. Our findings indicate a significant number of specially trained self-employed Registered Nurses providing primary health care services to fill the health care system "gaps!"
Consider sending your identified innovative specific services as self-employed Registered Nurses that effectively "Reconnect Health Care to People Care."
Again, as in the previous three years we'll post your stories to celebrate
International Nurses Day on Florence Nightingale's Birthday, May 12, 2017.
