CNO recognized for regulatory leadership

The College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) was recognized for its global regulatory leadership at the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) Annual Meeting and Delegate Assembly this week.

NCSBN is a U.S. non-profit that supports nursing regulation. It works with regulators around the world to share knowledge and solutions to borderless health care delivery and agile regulatory systems that protect and promote patient safety. CNO is an exam user member at NCSBN, and we work together to learn and share best practices.

Based on that ongoing collaboration, Anne Coghlan, CNO’s former CEO and Executive Director, was honoured with the R. Louise McManus Award at the meeting. The award recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions and a commitment to the mission and vision of NCSBN.

And Carol Timmings, the current acting CEO and Executive Director and Chief Quality Officer, was elected to one of four Director-at-Large positions on the NCSBN Board of Directors. In this role, Timmings will support NCSBN’s plan to improve patient safety and regulatory excellence globally.
