Professionals, first and foremost. All nurses are knowledge based professionals.

In Ontario, RPNs are community college graduates. After graduation, they write a national certification examination.

All nurses must renew their CNO registration annually, maintaining up-to-date skills and knowledge of current practices, to preserve their professional standing.
