With too many Ontarians struggling daily to access high quality mental health and addiction services, it is critical that access to psychotherapy by qualified practitioners be increased instead of curtailed.

    That’s why RNAO is urging the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) to pursue initiation regulations for psychotherapy and calling on MPP John Fraser to ensure registered nurses who have experience in this field can continue to both perform and initiate psychotherapy services.

    Do you read the Registered Nurse Journal? Do you have thoughts on the stories and photos?

    Consider joining our Editorial Advisory Committee where we discuss the latest issue and ensure the content is consistent with the values and policy priorities of RNAO.

    The committee meets six times a year by teleconference. Committee members must attend at least two-thirds of all meetings and sign up for a two-year term.

    Marking RNAO’s 17th Queen’s Park Day, 115 registered nurses (RNs), nurse practitioners (NPs), and nursing students met with 55 MPPs to talk about important nursing, health and health-care issues and solutions to improve access to care.
