At any stage of your career, you will find affiliation and support in the Canadian Academy of Nursing — the home of nursing leadership in Canada. Join the Academy, take part in our online communities of practice, and enjoy complimentary access to the Canadian Journal of Nursing Leadership. For the most experienced nurses, we offer a prestigious Fellowship program that carries its own special benefits for those who are inducted.
As a CNA member, you help us develop our policy and strategy directions. For example, you can join one of our advisory councils and work on the future of nursing, francophone nursing issues, Indigenous relations, racism and discrimination, specialty nursing practice, and professional nursing and membership. We also count on your expertise in a range of formal external advocacy activities, such as speaking on health topics as witnesses before parliamentary committees.
Our members contribute to the development of our policy recommendations to governments in priority areas, including:
- Health human resources
- Seniors and aging
- Mental health and addictions
- Primary care
- Indigenous health
CNA is an action-oriented, national resource for the nurses and people of Canada. We are your CNA. Join us in our shared mission to make nursing stronger, develop better health policy, and improve the health of Canadians.
