I am impressed with PNEIG’s new HOME-PAGE…..captures our PURPOSE precisely, with immediate LINKS for supporting Academic & Clinical Nurse Educators.
Please ensure that PNEIG’s latest NEWSLETTER, April 2010, is available on our HOME-PAGE for quick access as well, which included an array of “true-life” submissions on SIMULATION, a journey to Queen’s Park and an update on Nursing Research in Ontario……a glimpse into the riveting activity of PNEIG!

Hi, I am looking for information about the different roles and work environment for nurses (RN or NP) in Ontario. I am a guidance counsellor and I am trying to list the different work options for nurses but the ones that would limit direct patient care.

I thought of research or telehealth. I know some nurses have a more “administrative” role but I don’t know exactly what kind of title they hold. I don’t know what kind of training these positions would require either. Would it require to be a NP ?

If any of you can provide some information or share your thoughts it would be very appreciated.

I am sorry for my English, my mother thong is French.

Thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry Martine. You will find the website of the College of Nurses to be helpful in sorting out the different levels of nursing – the RPN, RN and NP. The CNO has publications which are downloadable on their website that will explain those differences. You may wish to consult them at: cno.org

Working at telehealth is probably an RN job. Research can be an RN or NP but prepared at an advanced level such as a Masters or PhD.
I hope this has been helpful.
