NPs can admit, treat and discharge patients across all sectors of the health system.
Nurses know what it takes
Nurses know what it will take to achieve a better, more responsive and sustainable health system. Above all, it means putting you first. And it means changing the way we think about health care. How we deliver care. Where we deliver that care. And who delivers it. The changes we envision will lead to a stronger health system that is focused on helping you to stay healthy, and is there for you when you are sick. This is what Ontarians need and deserve and this is what nurses are committed to achieving.
RNAO's mission is to foster knowledge-based nursing practice, promote quality work environments, deliver excellence in professional development, and advance healthy public policy to improve health.
We promote the full participation of present and future registered nurses in improving health, and shaping and delivering health-care services.
