The Provincial Nurse Educator Interest Group (PNEIG) is an interest group in the Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO). PNEIG’s purpose is to provide a forum for members interested in educational matters to network and discuss issues of provincial and regional importance. This group currently has over 700 members from across Ontario. Approximately half are from the practice setting and half from nursing programs.

I am impressed with PNEIG’s new HOME-PAGE…..captures our PURPOSE precisely, with immediate LINKS for supporting Academic & Clinical Nurse Educators.
Please ensure that PNEIG’s latest NEWSLETTER, April 2010, is available on our HOME-PAGE for quick access as well, which included an array of “true-life” submissions on SIMULATION, a journey to Queen’s Park and an update on Nursing Research in Ontario……a glimpse into the riveting activity of PNEIG!
Graciously submitted by Marja Pehkonen – honoured to have served on the executive and always proud to be a PNEIG/RNAO member!
