The RNAO (Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario) is launching a #TogetherWeCanDoIt campaign.👏 NOW, more than ever -- we MUST inject positive energy to lift up the front-lines workers, as well as keep all of us going with long hours and long worries! This is why, beginning Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. (EDT) and every evening thereafter – we ask you to cheer on the millions of health providers, social service and other essential front-line workers in Ontario, Canada, and around the world tackling #COVID-19. Step out onto your porch, balcony or open a window and make some noise in honour of our heroes who are working on our behalf. You can bang some pots and pans, you can sing a song🎤🥁, you can applaud👏, and yes – you can honk. 🎼🚗🚕
Remember 7:30 p.m. (EDT) sharp, everyday, until the fight against COVID-19 is over!
GET READY TO PARTICIPATE. Use the hashtags #TogetherWeCanDoIt 👏 #Cheer4HealthWorkers and tag @RNAO when sharing or Tweeting how you and your community are cheering on our front-line providers!
I finished Nursing School in May, 1989. Twenty-eight years ago. Graduation was in June and I started my first job at Toronto East General Hospital (now the Michael Garron Hospital) in July. I wrote my provincial exam in August to become an RN! I worked at TEGH for about 2 years, until I moved to Florida for a year while working at Broward General Medical Center. I spent 2½ years at Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock, AR before moving back to Canada. I have been working at the same Home Care Agency since May 1997!
HAPPY NURSES WEEK to all my Nurse Friends!
A small sample of my 27 years as an RN.
I have worked in Toronto, Florida, and Little Rock, Arkansas. For the past 18 years I have worked in Niagara!
May 12th, 2016
I don't live in the US but I have been an RN for 27 years and I worked in both Florida and Arkansas earlier in my career.
I really wish that I could have made this rally!
Hopefully next year!
Check out the ShowMeYourStethoscope blog for all things Nursing.
All these nurses attending this rally are smart, energetic and have a passion for the profession!!
The founder of SMYS, Janie Harvey Garner, is the epitome of what a nurse should be- caring, compassionate and organized with the ability to unite almost 700,000 nurses in the US and around the world.

I am an RN. I have been for almost 27 years. I belong to the facebook group ShowMeYourStethoscope. It is founded and organized by Janie Garner.
She started it because of the comments on The View a while back. You know the ones.
Janie and her team have managed to unite Nurses all over the world.
She has done a boatload of good things- especially around Christmas.
Another good thing is she has organized is a bottled water drive for Flint, Michigan.
If you don't know what is happening in Flint, please Google it.
You can check out Janie's blog post here.
You can donate water to Flint here.
Help if you can.
Share the link far and wide.
Together, we can do it.
