About this Event:

Despite all of the challenges of COVID-19, the nursing profession has been pivotal to protecting and caring for Ontarians during all phases of the pandemic. However, the unrelenting stress of the pandemic has taken a tremendous toll on the health and wellbeing of Ontario nurses, those across Canada and internationally. 

Between May and July of 2021, during Ontario’s third wave, RNAO distributed a detailed survey about the impact of the pandemic on nurses across the country. Nursing Through Crisis: A Comparative Perspective presents the findings that emerged out of this survey and compares the results to similarly focused surveys.

On May 12, RNAO will share the results of the survey and the recommendations necessary to confront the nursing crisis. In addition, the association will reveal four programs developed to better support Ontario nurses and provide them with professional development opportunities, enhance their work and wellbeing, and contribute to a healthy work environment.
