COVID vaccine updates

Are you up to date on your vaccines?
All Ontarians aged five and older are encouraged to get booster doses, as evidence shows that vaccine protection decreases over time. Go to www.ontario.ca/page/covid-19-vaccines to see if you are due for a booster dose.

What is a Nurse Practitioner

  • A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a registered nurse with advanced education, skills and experience who provides personalized, quality health care to the people of Ontario.
  • As Registered Nurses in the Extended Class [RN (EC)] they are regulated by the College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO).
  • Only nurses who are registered in the Extended Class can refer to themselves as Nurse Practitioners.
  • Maintaining registration in the Extended Class requires ongoing education, training and complying with a high level quality assurance program.
  • In Ontario, the average Nurse Practitioner works for 16 years as a Registered Nurse before returning to school to complete a Master’s degree or post baccalaureate certificate to qualify as an NP (CRaNHR NP Workforce Study, 2012)

What does a Nurse Practitioner do?

NPs have the competency to:

  • diagnose
  • order and interpret diagnostic tests
  • prescribe all medications
  • perform medical procedures

They work with individuals and families to manage illness or chronic conditions, prevent illness through health screening, and promote wellness through education and community resources. In essence, NPs bring together the medical knowledge needed to diagnose and treat illnesses with the values and skills of nursing.
