The second year of the pandemic continued to present extraordinary challenges to the health care system — including to CNO. We continued to address the needs of the system by supporting safe nursing care and registering more nurses more quickly. Now, you can read in our annual report, about all the ways we supported Ontario’s pandemic response in 2021.
Titled Strengthening the System our annual report is part of our commitment to partnership and accountability. It details the work we did to protect and promote patient safety in 2021, including registering a record number of internationally educated nurses (IENs), putting our Strategic Plan into action and working with our valued partners in patient safety, such as Ontario Health, with whom we laid the groundwork for the Supervised Practice Experience Partnership (SPEP).
