ARNPEI is pleased to welcome Leeann Whitney RN, BScN (Laurentian), MA Ed (Central Michigan) to PEI. In light of the fact that, to date, we have not been able to fill the registrar position, Leeann who is a very skilled nursing leader has agreed to take a contract with ARNPEI. She has to come to PEI to act as Interim Registrar from Jan 8th to April 30th. Leeann has an extensive career in nursing in Ontario, most recently as the Executive Director of the North Bay Nurse Practitioner-Led Clinic. Previously she held various positions at the North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit, Nipissing University, Canadore College and Laurentian University. Examples of her background include working in leadership and strategic planning, cultural sensitivity, inter-professional education and human resource planning. Leeann will be a huge asset in our efforts to work with government in our transition to the RHPA. She has received several awards for her work with RNs and NPs.
