Professional Responsibility

The College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) and other regulatory bodies have Standards of Practice that registrants are expected to meet in order to provide safe, ethical and quality patient/client/resident care within their scope of practice.

ONA has developed the Professional Responsibility and Workload (PRW) process to resolve professional practice and workload issues.

By engaging in the PRW process, you are playing a pivotal role in meeting your Accountability Standard for your regulatory college, while advocating for patient safety and quality patient care.

Find Professional Responsibility Workload Report Forms (PRWRFs) for ONA members working in hospitals and other important Professional Practice information and resources, on the ONA Professional Practice webpage.

If you need assistance with the Workload Report Forms or have any questions regarding professional practice, please contact the Local 46 team.
