Academic Reference Group: Recruiting new members

About CNO’s Academic Reference Group

The Academic Reference Group (ARG) is comprised of representatives from practical nursing (PN), baccalaureate (BN), and nurse practitioner (NP) programs that provide entry level nursing education in Ontario, as well as CNO staff. The group provides a mechanism for CNO and educators to engage, share information and collaborate with each other on strategic and operational matters. This collaboration is used to inform nursing regulation and supports nursing educators with nursing program delivery.

ARG membership

Membership in the group is voluntary and is for a three-year term, with an option for a one-year renewal. The group meets virtually for a two-hour meeting ever quarter. Members might also be updated by email throughout the year.

  • have a range of knowledge and experience of nursing education, either from PN, BN or NP programs
