Our strength is in the knowledge, skill and influence of Canada’s nurses.
CNA is the national and global professional voice of Canadian nursing. We represent registered nurses, nurse practitioners, licensed and registered practical nurses, registered psychiatric nurses, retired nurses and nursing students across all 13 provinces and territories.
We advance the practice and profession of nursing to improve health outcomes and strengthen Canada’s publicly funded, not-for-profit health system.
CNA speaks for Canadian nursing and represents the profession to other organizations and to governments, nationally and internationally. We give nurses a strong national association through which they can support each other and speak with one voice. We provide nurses with a core staff of nursing and health policy consultants and experts in other areas such as communication and testing.
