CNO welcomes fees initiative from Ministry of Health

TORONTO, Ont. Aug 18, 2022 – The College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) welcomes the Ministry of Health’s announcement today regarding nursing fees.

CNO is committed to protecting the public by promoting safe nursing practice. This includes registering nurses with the knowledge, skill and judgment to practice safely in Ontario, no matter where they are educated, and that remains our guiding principle with this announcement.

We look forward to collaborating and partnering with the Ontario government and the Ministry of Health on the initiative announced today for Ontario to temporarily cover the costs of examination, application and registration fees for Internationally Educated Nurses (IENs) and retired nurses.

We do not have implementation details at this time and we look forward to working with the Ministry of Health on next steps.
