The Registration Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) is the professional association representing registered nurses (RNs) working in all roles and sectors in Ontario. Our mandate is to promote healthy public policy and the role of nurses in shaping and delivering health services now and in the future.
RNAO is pleased to provide a written submission to the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) as part of the consultation process on a proposed by-law amendment requiring members to obtain professional liability protection (PLP).
The Association is gravely concerned with the changes that have been made to the proposed CNO by-law since this process began in 2010 and we urge the CNO Council to leave politics aside and do what’s best for the public. The potential risks to the public associated with the most recent amendments made by the CNO are substantive and we introduce the most salient ones in this submission.
