More than 100 nurses from across the province joined RNAO and Indigenous Services Canada in Niagara Falls for a workshop aimed at nurses working with First Nations in Ontario.

    Nurses who work with Indigenous communities were given the opportunity to learn about evidence-based best practices on cultural safety, trauma-informed care, and strength-based approaches to mental health, substance use and chronic diseases.   

    For almost a decade, RNAO has called on its members to share with colleagues the true meaning of nursing through anecdotal storytelling. 

    Is there a particular individual – patient or colleague – who comes to mind when you’re asked what nursing means to you? Is there a situation you can recall that had a profound effect on you, reminding you just why you decided to become a nurse?

    RNAO is thrilled to announce several upcoming free Addressing Substance Use Champions Workshops taking place across the province. Six foundational (level 1) and one advanced (level 2) workshop will begin in fall 2019.
