Research Facts
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.
