Registed Nurses' Association of Ontario


Join the conversation – an open forum for nurses to share how they are feeling during COVID-19

RNAO is aware nurses across this province – especially those working on the frontlines of COVID-19 – are experiencing tremendous levels of physical and emotional stress and burnout. We know this can affect your mental health and well-being at this challenging time and that you may have less time to devote to your own self care.

This is why RNAO is organizing an open forum on Wednesday, Feb. 3 from 2:30-3:30 p.m. ET. 

All RNs, NPs, RPNs and nursing students – in all roles and sectors – are invited to take part. You may wish to share how things are going for you, if you feel comfortable doing so. Or, you can simply join and listen in. Either way, you are welcome to our open forum.

Register online.  

In an effort to understand the impact of COVID-19 on your work and well-being and the best ways we can continue to support you and Ontario’s nursing community, RNAO has created a short survey. If you are an RN, NP or nursing student in Ontario, please complete this 15-minute survey. Your participation will allow RNAO to better understand how this pandemic has changed your work, your attitude to work and your future in nursing, and inform our policy and advocacy now and into the future. It will also allow us to capture trends and themes across health-care sectors and settings that may inform our "Join the Conversation" open forum series for nurses to share how they are feeling and coping during COVID-19. 

All responses will remain anonymous and your privacy protected. 

We thank you in advance for sharing your experiences and views with us at your earliest convenience. The survey will close at 4 p.m. on Feb. 16, 2021.

Note: If you are an RNAO member, please accept our thanks for strengthening the strong nursing voice in shaping healthy public policy. If you are not a member, join now at to be part of a community that supports RNs, NPs and nursing students to make a difference in their roles in serving the people of Ontario.
