Click on "Executive" for your 2017-2018 executive.

The AGM took place in the St. James Cathedral Centre, a convenient and pleasant location for this years meeting. Attendance was lower than expected but this could be the result of the date change. The executive has decided once again to hold next years meeting to coincide with RNAO's AGM and at the same location. We would like to get feed back from you about this decision and look for ways to make it possible for more to be present.

CNA Position Statement on Spirituality, Health and Nursing Practice

Canadian Nurses Association Position Statement on Spirituality, Health and Nursing Practice

June 2010, CNA issued their position statement on Spirituality, Health and Nursing Practice. The initiative behind this statement was the resolution put forward by PNIG at RNAO's AGM in April 2004, that "spiritual well-being be included in the WHO definition of Health". Dr. June Webber, Director, Department of International Policy and Development, CNA brought this issue to the attention of the International Council of Nurses (ICN).
