RNAO has built a strong network of partners provincially, nationally and internationally. With the support of other equally passionate organizations, we have been able to advance the role and image of nurses as members of a vital, knowledge-driven, caring profession, and as significant contributors to health.
Together with our partners, we have spoken out on emerging issues that impact on nurses and the nursing profession, health and health care. We share important values with these partners, and an understanding that by working collaboratively, we can harness the expertise of each group to strengthen our health system.
The association has been recognized for this important work with partners for many years. Members of RNAO and home office staff are regularly honoured and acknowledged for their outstanding work by our partners, including Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the Canadian Online Publishing Awards, Canada’s Health Care Public Relations Association, [other], and [other].
Thanks to these ongoing awards and affiliations, your association is able to further its mission to foster knowledge-based nursing practice, promote quality work environments, deliver excellence in professional development, and advance healthy public policy to improve health.
