ONA launches “Ask a Specialist”!

We are pleased to announce a new, interactive initiative that will help ONA leaders and members with professional practice and workload issues. ONA’s Professional Practice team will be offering one-hour sessions for leaders and members to connect with a Professional Practice Specialist.

The Specialists will be discussing their process, and then answering any questions leaders or members may have. And, they will be assisting and supporting our members and leaders through the process to achieve more timely resolutions. We will send out notifications by email, so please be sure we have your most up-to-date information by completing the form here.
