No matter your practice area or what population of patients you serve, the OSUNO in collaboration with the ONA has the tools, resources, and support nurses need to be the best they can be and to ensure that the patients they care for receive the care they deserve.

If you’re interested in serving on the board for the 2020-2021 term, or if you know someone who would make a great leader, the nominations are open through October 4, 2019.  Click here to access the call for nominations today.
