Delays expected for some applications

The College of Nurses of Ontario (CNO) is resuming normal operations following a closure due to a cyber security incident. Applicants who are currently or were previously registered in Ontario may experience delays in the assessment of their application if we have not received your registration verification from CNO. Visit the CNO website for updates.​​
