This year marks the College of Nurses of Ontario’s (CNO’s) 60th anniversary. Since 1963, we have been protecting the public by promoting safe nursing practice.
We have a proud history of producing innovative regulatory and process outcomes that have changed health care in Ontario for the better. This trend continues today.
“Our anniversary is an opportunity to reflect on the leadership and experiences that will guide us in advancing safe patient care,” says Silvie Crawford, Executive Director and CEO of CNO. “We are grateful to the nurses of Ontario and all our partners in safety for their contributions and collaboration.”
To help commemorate this anniversary, we are sharing highlights of our history and key milestones in the promotion of safe nursing practice.
