Local hospitals have put the call out to all nurses.

Nurses currently living in the region whose licences have lapsed, or are registered in other Canadian provinces outside of Ontario or American jurisdictions, are encouraged to register for an expedited process to practice in local hospitals.

The College of Nurses of Ontario have confirmed that they have gone live with their application process to expedite the registration of nurses in the Emergency Class.

This means that CNO has been given the authority to issue Emergency Assignment certificates of registration to qualified Registered Nurses (RNs) and Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs) by the provincial government.

The goal is to increase the availability of local nurses to support the containment of COVID-19 in local hospitals.
