Nursing Practice Symposium

Nursing Practice Symposium

MNA’s nursing practice symposium provides a forum to discuss threats to the nursing scope of practice and ways MNA members can uphold their nursing code of ethics. These workshops will provide tools for responding to challenges that erode the nursing profession, make the job more stressful and contribute to feelings of burn-out.

Nursing Scope of Practice: Protecting the professional judgement of nurses is a core MNA philosophy. It’s critical that nurses are able to practice to the full extent of their education and abilities, in order to create a culture wherein nurses are proud of the quality care they deliver to patients. Sign up to explore current threats to nursing practice and discuss solutions to these challenges.

Nursing Ethics: Imagine a hospital or a clinic whose every policy and procedure reflect the highest standards of nursing ethics. Does the facility where you work reflect that? Have you experienced policies that do not put patient safety and family well-being first? What should MNA members do when they are asked to violate their professional code of Ethics? Join us for this course to discuss pressing ethical issues at the bedside and in healthcare more broadly.

Nurses, the Opioid Crisis and Substance Use Disorders: In this workshop we learn about MNA contractual rights concerning substance use disorders, we’ll learn about support programs such as the Nurse Peer Support Network and the Health Professionals Services Program. Our discussion will center around providing support to nurses facing substance use.
