ALL nurses are an integral part of positive patient outcomes.
The rhetoric that accuses health professionals who are not RNs as being unqualified for their own jobs holds back the future of nursing in Ontario. It’s unproven, unhealthy and breeds a culture of distrust among nursing professionals.
SEIU Healthcare sent yet another letter to the government encouraging them to establish a clear understanding of the respective roles and competencies of the individual nurse to support and achieve intra-professional collaborative practice.
For your information and reference, you can view this letter by clicking here. Please share this with other nurses and bring your voices forward.
We will be following up with the Ministry for their feedback on addressing this important issue and will keep you informed as we hear back from them.
