“Ask a registered nurse” Key Messages
1. The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) created a national public awareness campaign
to promote the value that registered nurses (RNs) bring to the health-care system,
raise awareness of the depth and complexity of their roles, and demonstrate the knowledge and
high standard of care they provide to Canadians.
2. CNA is working to improve the health-care system through the leadership of nursing,
a profession that is nearly 300,000 strong and provides care to people at every stage of life
in a multitude of settings.
3. Through print and television advertisements, CNA’s campaign gives glimpses into the
everyday work of RNs as they care for Canadians with expert knowledge, compassion and respect.
4. CNA’s RN campaign features scenarios from the four care settings: acute, community,
home and long-term care. The scenarios depict an assault victim, a cancer patient, an elderly
resident and a young mother — representing real situations where RNs provide care.
5. The language that accompanies the visuals of CNA’s RN ad campaign is designed to be
thought-provoking, to lead Canadians to consider the many different ways RNs support their
health and well-being — physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.
6. Registered nurse members of CNA were invited to appear in the campaign.
Those featured in the campaign were selected by a committee made up of CNA’s staff
and RN advisors, and john st., the advertising firm producing the campaign.
7. CNA members appearing in campaign materials represent Canada’s RN profession,
not themselves as individuals or their workplaces.
Ask a registered nurse
first-ever nationwide RN public awareness campaign to raise awareness of the
depth and complexity of the RN role. Through print and television
advertisements, the campaign gives glimpses into the everyday work of RNs as
they care for Canadians with expert knowledge, compassion and respect.
