On July 1, 2012, cuts made by the federal government to the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) went into effect.
The result of these cuts means many refugees, including children and pregnant women, are being denied necessary health care.
Registered nurses and nurse practitioners will join physicians at a series of rallies planned for this coming Monday (June 17, 2013) to mark one year since Ottawa’s decision to cut health-care funding for refugees.
RNAO's Board of Directors (BOD) changed its policy for membership in the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA).
Beginning November 1, 2014, RNAO members will have the option to decide whether or not their RNAO membership includes membership within the CNA, the country's national nursing body. We recognize the benefit of being part of a strong national professional body that represents the nursing profession and we will continue to encourage all RNAO members to belong to CNA, however, we believe the ultimate decision is up to individual members.
