Research Facts
The Canadian Nurses Association began in 1908, under the name the Canadian National Association of Trained Nurses. Its name was changed to its current version in 1924. Today, the Canadian Nurses Association is dedicated to "unifying the voices of nurses; strengthening nursing leadership; promoting nursing excellence and a vibrant profession; advocating for healthy public policy and a quality health system; and serving the public interest.
The Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario, by 1935, was instrumental in developing standards for nursing education and practice. The association protected the title “registered nurse” by making it mandatory to be registered. Nurses had to graduate from nursing school and subsequently be examined again in order to become registered nurses in Ontario. Examinations for the Registered Nurse Certificate began in 1923.

Research Facts
The Canadian Nurses Association began in 1908, under the name the Canadian National Association of Trained Nurses. Its name was changed to its current version in 1924. Today, the Canadian Nurses Association is dedicated to "unifying the voices of nurses; strengthening nursing leadership; promoting nursing excellence and a vibrant profession; advocating for healthy public policy and a quality health system; and serving the public interest.
The Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario, by 1935, was instrumental in developing standards for nursing education and practice. The association protected the title “registered nurse” by making it mandatory to be registered. Nurses had to graduate from nursing school and subsequently be examined again in order to become registered nurses in Ontario. Examinations for the Registered Nurse Certificate began in 1923.
