About this Event:

Many nurses across Ontario find themselves having to respond to an investigation by the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO). Even if a nurse does not actually engage in any wrongdoing, they could still become the subject matter of an investigation.

During this presentation, participants will learn about:

  • the investigation process at the CNO
  • the statutory framework for the investigatory power of the CNO
  • the types of professional misconduct which could be investigated
  • the nursing standards which nurses are expected to meet
  • the legal rights which all nurses have in dealing with an investigation
  • potential outcomes of an investigation


  • Chris Bryden, lawyer, Ryder Wright Blair & Holmes LLP
  • Mara Haase, RNAO’s LAP Administrator
