Navigating back to App ViewChild (Side Menu)

So there are a few instances where I would want to navigate directly to a page in the sidemenu, breaking the nav stack.

class MyApp {
  @ViewChild(Nav) nav: Nav;

  // make HelloIonicPage the root (or first) page
  rootPage: any = BrowsePage;
  pages: Array<{title: string, component: any}>;

public platform: Platform,
public menu: MenuController) {

// set our app's pages
this.pages = [
  { title: 'Find Events', component: BrowsePage },
  { title: 'Create Event', component: CreatePage },
  {title: 'My Events', component: MyEventsPage},
  {title: 'Attending', component: EventsAttendingPage}

If I’m in the BrowsePage and press a button to go to an event

public attend (e) {
    this.EventService.attending(e._id).then(() => {
        this.AlertService.toast("You're in!");

How could I navigate directly to the EventsAttendingPage from the App ViewChild?

Does this work?
