July 2019: Learner Achievement Letters

O-PREP and the Associate Chief Nursing Office in AHS is pleased to announce a new approach to O-PREP learner recognition.

Learner Achievement letters will be sent to O-PREP learners who achieve a total of 4 or more de Souza credits on the O-PREP Learning Pathway.

O-PREP encourages these learners to provide a copy of the letter to their managers for their employee file and to maintain the original for their professional portfolio.

Did you know? There are 3 O-PREP learners who have achieved this milestone in their ongoing oncology education and have received their letters. Congratulations!
