CHARLOTTETOWN, PE (January 17, 2020) –
In recents weeks, the Prince Edward Island Nurses’ Union received and acknowledged resignation letters from three executives of the board of directors.
During a special meeting of the union membership, held in Charlottetown on January 15, 2020, Mona O’Shea, president of PEI Nurses’ Union, had the honour of welcoming new executive members of the board of directors: Lisa Durley RN, from Prince County Hospital, as vice president; Blair MacDonald RN, from Hillsborough Hospital, as treasurer; and Robin Dunn RN, from Western Hospital as secretary.
“The work of the PEI Nurses’ Union is very important to our members and to all Islanders,” said O’Shea. “As a democratic organization, we understand that differences of opinion are bound to arise – that healthy and respectful debates are par for the course. Ultimately, however, we are all guided by the same desire to fight for and deliver the best care.”
The PEI Nurses’ Union is grateful to outgoing board members for their leadership, contributions and dedication to the nursing profession.
Our work has always been about being strong advocates on behalf of nurses, fighting for better health care and for a healthier PEI. Together, with the help of countless passionate union volunteers, we will continue to find solutions to address the nursing shortage, improve workplace conditions and protect Canada’s public health care system.”
