Reminder: Get your nomination form to run for the Council election in by Friday, Nov. 24

CNO is holding Council elections in three districts: the Southwestern and Central Western districts for NPs, RNs and RPNs, and the Central Toronto district for RPNs.

You can find out more about the districts and elections on our Council elections page.

If you’re eligible to run for election in one of these three districts, you were notified by email on Oct. 12. Council benefits from members who can bring diverse experiences, skills and perspectives – this could include you. It’s an important responsibility to protect the public by promoting safe nursing practice, and it’s a rewarding one too.

If you’re interested in running for Council, you can read our Council elections page to see what’s involved and submit your nomination form by 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 24.

Voting for candidates will take place from Monday, Jan. 22, 2024 to Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2024.

Reminder: Get your nomination form to volunteer for a committee appointment in by Friday, Dec. 1 

CNO is also looking for nurses to join committees. Unlike Council elections, these are appointments and we’re looking for nurses like you, province-wide, who have the knowledge, skill and judgment to protect the public interest and the enthusiasm to give back.

You can learn more about committee appointments, including the time commitment, accountabilities the role comes with and how to apply on our website.

We’re just a few weeks away from the final Council meeting of the calendar year.

Council, which is CNO’s board of directors, will meet from Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2023 to Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023 to discuss items related to how to protect the public by promoting safe nursing practice.

CNO meets with nurses and health care partners at Ontario Long-Term Care Association conference

CNO met with nurses, employers and other health care partners at the annual Ontario Long-Term Care Association conference from Oct. 22 to 24.

The conference, which took place in Toronto, brought together health care professionals from around the province to discuss emerging research, quality improvement initiatives and innovations in the sector. It included keynote speakers, discussion panels and booths.

CNO had a booth where we welcomed attendees, listened to comments and answered questions.

“It was a wonderful opportunity to meet with long-term care home staff and health care partners,” said Amanda Laird, a Registered Nurse and CNO’s Team Lead for Practice Quality. “We know how important long-term care is to our health care system and we are always here to support nurses to deliver safe care to residents.”
