We can now join CNA as an independent RN. In order for the CNSs in Ontario to remain connected with the national association (CNA), the International Council of Nurses (ICN) and the International Nurse Practitioner/Advanced Practice Nursing Network (INP/APNN). We can join CNA directly if you have not done so via RNAO:




http://www.icn.ch/ (ICN)
