The Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO), with the support of the Government of Ontario, manages the Long-Term Care Best Practices Program to enhance quality care in long-term care (LTC) through the role of the LTC best practices implementation coach.    
We are seeking an accomplished registered nurse (RN) to take a lead role in facilitating utilization of best practices in long-term care homes.  

This is a full-time position. The LTC best practices implementation coach would work remotely from their home office with occasional travel to long-term care homes in their assigned region, as permitted by public health and Ministry of Health directives. 


As a LTC best practices implementation coach, you will support the implementation of evidence-based practices in LTC homes. You will participate in development of strategies and approaches to integrate best practice guidelines and other evidence-based practices in LTC by working with the leadership teams at the homes, as well as the clinical team, including, regulated and unregulated staff. This is a consultative role, and requires virtual and in-person site visits (in alignment with public health and Ministry of Health directives) to the assigned homes to coach and support their implementation efforts.

As a member of the Long-Term Care Best Practices Program team, you will be involved in both local and provincial best practice implementation activities and projects. You will seek out and co-ordinate opportunities for the promotion and use of evidence-based best practices in LTC homes. Learn more about the LTC Best Practices Program.


You are an RN (masters degree preferred), currently registered in good standing with the College of Nurses of Ontario with a minimum of five years progressive experience in nursing, which includes two years experience in the long-term care sector. You must be familiar with current LTC legislation, knowledgeable about the principles of evidence-based practice and possess experience in implementing RNAO best practice guidelines. You also have experience in using adult education and change management principles.

Team building skills; consultation and coaching skills; leadership and motivational skills; project management experience; knowledge of long-term care programs; strong facilitation skills; and the ability to work with a range of stakeholders are a must in this role. A current driver’s license and a vehicle is required for occasional travel to long-term care homes in your assigned region. 

RNAO is committed to providing an inclusive, equitable and accessible environment, where all employees feel valued, respected and supported. We welcome applications from all qualified candidates who can help us build a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities in which we live. Accommodations are available to all candidates identifying a need during all or any parts of the selection process.
