TORONTO, May 13, 2020 – The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) joins its nursing colleagues and the entire health-care community in mourning the death of RN Brian Beattie. Brian, who was 55-years-old, was an expert mental health nurse who worked at Kensington Village.  

    Frontline health-care workers must have the personal protective equipment (PPE) and supplies they need to care for their patients during the COVID-19 outbreak.

    On March 22, RNAO released a joint media release with the Ontario Medical Association (OMA), calling on all levels of government and organizations to continue their efforts to bring urgency to the global shortage of PPE and essential medical equipment.

    Looking for a new and exciting learning experience? RNAO is now accepting request for proposals for the Advanced Clinical Practice Fellowship program.

    The program provides RNs and NPs the opportunity to develop their clinical, leadership or best practice guideline implementation knowledge and skills with support from a mentor(s), the organization where the RN/NP is employed and RNAO.

    Fellowships can take place any time between Sept. 4, 2020 - Feb. 1, 2021 and run for approximately 12 weeks (full-time) or 20 weeks (part-time) for a total of 450 hours.
