We are nearing completion of our report on Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and the nursing profession.

Over the last several months we have been reviewing existing research, working with trauma specialists, and speaking with members through interviews and focus groups.

If you are interested in sharing your thoughts or story on this issue please contact Communications Officer, Emily Doer.
We look forward to sharing the report with our findings at the 40th Anniversary AGM April 27-30, 2015.
