As nurses, we take part in some of the most significant events that happen in the span of a lifetime. We see a lot we seldom talk about - moments that stay with us long after a shift has ended. But when the well-being of our patients is threatened, it’s our duty to speak out.
Ontario's healthcare system is falling short. Years of inadequate funding and cuts have left us with fewer RNs per person than any other province. Every time a Registered Nurse is cut, patients lose a skilled pro-fessional and a caring advocate. Since 2015, over 1,500 RN positions have been eliminated in Ontario.
Our patients deserve the best possible care.
As nurses we make a pledge to ensure just that.
