The main role of a CRNS Liaison (formerly Workplace Representative) is to be a connection between the CRNS and its registrants about registered nursing and issues within the mandate of the CRNS.
What do CRNS Liaisons do?
- Liaisons circulate information provided by the CRNS to their colleagues. Information may include sharing emails regarding upcoming events, health care and nursing issues alerts or print information included in a mailed package.
- Liaisons will post this information on a bulletin board at work or leave it in the coffee room for staff to read during their breaks.
- Liaisons relay any questions or concerns from their colleagues to CRNS staff for further discussion.
What are some opportunities for Liaisons?
- Occasionally the CRNS will ask for volunteers to participate in focus groups or provide feedback on CRNS documents that are being developed or reviewed.
- The CRNS Nominations Committee may contact Liaisons to gauge their interest in standing as a candidate for CRNS Council or the Nominations Committee.
- Liaisons can volunteer to represent the CRNS at education events or at school fairs. The CRNS will pay an honorarium and cover expenses for some activities.
- Liaisons may take part in leadership training activities sponsored by the CRNS.
Participation in these activities is optional and is not required to be involved as a CRNS Liaison.
What are some advantages for being a Liaison?
- The CRNS provides an annual education day in the fall for Liaisons to learn about the resources and services of the CRNS. An honorarium is available and expenses are covered to attend this event. Registration is limited, so please apply early. Attendance is optional.
- Liaisons can also apply for an education grant of $250 to use to attend CRNS or other nursing or health care related education events. Funding is limited and is on a first-come first-served basis for this program.
- The CRNS also provides opportunities for Liaisons to participate in contests with prizes of paid registration or expense coverage to attend conferences.
- Liaisons will receive an annual National Nursing Week Kit that is for National Nursing Week (NNW) in May. The kit contains a poster, list of suggested activities for NNW and promotional items to raffle or give away.
