April 12, 2013 (CP24 Toronto) Nurses in Ontario could soon be allowed to dispense medication in certain circumstances.
Premier Kathleen Wynne said Friday that the province is working with
the College of Nurses of Ontario to expand the functions of registered
nurses and registered nurse practitioners.
"We’re working with our nursing partners to expand the kind of services
you offer,” Wynne told a crowded room at the Registered Nurses
Association of Ontario general meeting. "I know how important it is that
your scope of practice is allowed to further match your expertise.”
