Canadian Nurses Association


The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) is a federation of 11 provincial and territorial registered nurses associations representing more than 126,000 Canadian registered nurses. CNA is the national professional voice of Registered Nurses,
supporting them in their practice and advocating for healthy public policy and a quality, publicly funded, not-for-profit health system. To do this, CNA:

CNA advances the discipline of nursing in the interest of the public.
CNA advocates for public policy that incorporates the principles of primary health care and respects the principles, conditions and spirit of the Canada Health Act.
CNA advances the regulation of Registered Nurses in the interest of the public.
CNA works in collaboration with nurses, other health-care providers, health system stakeholders and the public to achieve and sustain quality practice environments and positive client outcomes.
CNA advances international health policy and development in Canada and abroad to support global health and equity.
CNA promotes awareness of the nursing profession so that the roles and expertise of Registered Nurses are understood, respected and optimized within the health system.
CNA speaks for Canadian nurses and represents Canadian nursing to other organizations and to government nationally and internationally. It gives registered nurses a strong national association through which Canadian nurses support each other and speak with a powerful, unified voice. It provides registered nurses with a core staff of nursing and health policy consultants and experts in other areas such as communication and testing. CNA’s active role in legislative policy influences the health care decisions that affect nursing professionals every day. It has published a large number of documents including The Code of Ethics for Registered Nurses.
