For peace of mind: Add LAP to your RNAO membership

Did you know that, for only $64.57, RNAO offers an additional Legal Assistance Program (LAP) that is complementary to your professional liability protection (PLP)? 

LAP will protect you and your registration with the CNO in the following situations, which fall outside the scope of PLP:

  • You are named in a complaint to CNO. For instance, a patient under your care names you in a complaint alleging you failed to provide the care they required.
  • You need legal advice about an employment-related situation. This could include instances such as a lay-off or termination.
  • You are subpoenaed to provide testimony in a coroner’s inquest in relation to an incident which occurred in the course of nursing practice.

With both PLP and LAP, you are protected from a wider array of legal situations that may arise during your nursing career. 

Add LAP to your membership today.
