Have you retired from nursing, or currently thinking about your retirement? Consider joining RNAO, and stay active in your nursing community for only $87.83 per year.

RNAO membership provides a variety of benefits for retired nurses, regardless of whether or not you are registered with the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO).  Some of these benefits include:

  • RNAO’s Retired Nurses’ Interest Group (RetNIG), which you can join for only $15 per year. Harness the knowledge and experience of other retirees and help nurses before, during and after their transition to retirement.
  • Become a mentor and share your wealth of knowledge, skills and expertise with students and nurses at all stages of their careers.
  • Stay a connected to your nursing community through social events, workshops and RNAO’s annual general meeting.
  • Volunteer as an executive with your local chapter or interest group and help plan local events.
  • RNAO advocates for issues that matter to nurses, such as hiring more RNs and NPs, expanding their scope of practice, strengthening the health system, and reducing poverty.
  • Professional liability protection (PLP) - if you still have an RN or RN(EC) registration, the CNO requires you to have PLP regardless of whether you are practising. Membership at RNAO gives you PLP at no extra cost.
  • RNAO’s legal assistance program (LAP) costs $64.57 per year. LAP provides additional peace of mind and protection if you are recently retired, volunteering, and/or working part-time.
