Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario


It’s never too late to renew or join your professional association

If you already have renewed your membership, we thank you for being part of RNAO. This year, we reached a milestone of 42,056 members. RNAO appreciates your support and commitment. Together, we speak out for nursing and health and make a huge difference for RNs, NPs, nursing students and the public we serve.

RNAO’s new membership year began on Nov. 1, but lapsed or new members can still join.

Ask your nursing colleagues if they remembered to renew, and if they have not, remind them to renew today and take advantage of the association’s many benefits. New members are also welcome to join RNAO anytime, and the sooner they do, the faster they will take advantage of RNAO's benefits.

Membership fees:
- $256.36 if you are an RN or an NP that works full-time
- $175 if you belong to the Ontario Nurses Association (ONA)
- $87.83 if you are an RN or an NP that works part-time (less than 15 hours per week or are on maternity/paternity leave)
- free if you are a new grad

All fees include professional liability protection (PLP) and taxes.

And remember, for every new RN/NP you recruit, you will earn a $20 RNAO gift certificate. For every undergraduate nursing student you recruit, you will earn a $5 gift certificate. If you recruit five new RN/NP members*, your membership for next year is free.

*New members are RNs/NPs or undergraduate nursing students who have never been an RNAO member or associate before or who have not been a member or associate in the last two years.
