Nurses Health Program

The Nurses’ Health Program was developed by CNO, the Ontario Nurses’ Association (ONA), Registered Nurses’ Association of Ontario (RNAO) and Registered Practical Nurses Association of Ontario (WeRPN). This voluntary bilingual program encourages nurses to seek treatment for substance use and/or mental health disorders that could affect their ability to practice nursing safely.

At the Nurses' Health Program, we believe that with the right support nurses can return to safe nursing practice, which benefits both the nurse and the public.
