Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario


COVID-19 Webinar Series: Feb. 14 at 2 p.m. ET

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, so does RNAO’s monthly COVID-19 Webinar Series. Mark your calendar and register now: the next webinar event is happening on Monday, Feb. 14 at 2 p.m. ET.  The topic is how internationally educated nurses (IEN) can help solve the nursing crisis: A panel discussion and stories from IENs.

The panel will discuss the following:

  • the lived experiences of IENs who are facing an arduous process to meet registration requirements and practice as registered nurses in Ontario
  • overview of the various roadblocks to registration in Ontario
  • why temporary initiatives such as the Long-Term Care Staffing Pool Program are unhelpful and short-sighted 
  • actions RNAO is taking to expedite the path to registration in Ontario

Join the discussion to learn about the issues and how you can help advocate for swift and appropriate solutions. To learn more, visit RNAO's #IENaction webpage and follow @RNAO#IENaction and #NursingCrisis on Twitter. 

Nurses and other health-care providers from Ontario, Canada or abroad are welcome to join at no cost. For more information and to register, please visit RNAO’s event page
