All nurses have the right to practise in a supportive environment where workplace violence is not tolerated.

    That’s why all efforts to address workplace violence must be expanded to all health-care settings in which RNs, NPs and RPNs work, including long-term care.

    As your professional association, RNAO is committed to speaking out for nursing and speaking out for health. Your talent, expertise and activism are vital to our success.
