College's New Blog


Staying connected with the public and our members is important to us and we are committed to listening to what you have to say and keeping you informed. The College’s new blog is an opportunity to share ideas and thoughts about the work of the College and the nursing profession. Check out our first video message from new President Jacqueline Garden-Jayasinghe and tell us what you’d like to hear more about.

Compassionate Care During Challenging Times

Compassionate Care Logo

I don’t have enough time in my workday to demonstrate compassion. Has that sentence ever echoed through your head at the end of the day? If so, you’re not alone and at the College, we understand the professional dissatisfaction that can follow as a result.

Join us for an interactive day as together we explore a wide range of issues related to compassion. Through interactive activities as well as stories from our own practices, we will identify challenges and specific opportunities related to the provision of compassion. Click here to register.
