We would like to congratulate Michael Hogard, an RPN from Thunder Bay, who was recently elected to be the Chair for the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) Fitness to Practice committee. The committee determines whether a nurse is suffering from a condition or disorder that affects or could affect her or his practice.
Michael told Nursing News: Nursing Practice and Research Newsletter “I'm honoured to take on a leadership role within the committee and it’s a privilege to be involved in the self regulatory body that is the College of Nurses. I will provide a strong voice of leadership coming from the north and I want to thank the nurses who elected me and in doing so entrusted me with this responsibility. ” This will be Michael’s second term on the Fitness to Practice committee, and first as Chair of the committee. We wish Michael all the best!
