RNAO encourages the health and well-being of nurses in the workplace. In our guideline Workplace Health, Safety and Well-being of the Nurse, we recommend education and training programs aimed at increasing awareness of health and safety issues for nurses; practices that support, promote and maintain staff health, well-being and safety; and practices that foster mutual responsibility and accountability by individual nurses and organizational leaders to ensure a safe work environment.

We also have several archived webcasts that deal with conflicts at work, bullying and self-care.

To learn more about how you can improve your health in the workplace, please read our best practice guideline.
