VIANurse - Voluntarily
Immediately Available Nurse
VIANurse is an electronic
registry, maintained on RNAO’s web site, of RNs, and RPNs willing to
voluntarily indicate availability to be deployed to an Ontario health care
facility designated by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) as
on emergency status.
The purpose of VIANurse is
to facilitate provision of safe quality of care to the people of Ontario
when additional resources are required as a result of an emergency
VIANurse will be accessible
only to those employers who are designated on emergency status as defined by
health care organizations designated by the MOHLTC as on emergency status.
VIANurses include all
Registered Nurses [RNs and RN(EC)s] and Registered Practical Nurses (RPNs)
who are registered in good standing with the College of Nurses of Ontario
(or who are eligible for emergency registration with the College of Nurses
of Ontario), and who register with the site by choice.
VIANurses agree to be
deployed on short notice, to health care facilities anywhere in Ontario
which are designated to be on emergency status by the MOHLTC. Emergency
deployment will not exceed 60 calendar days, with provision for one
extension subject to the agreement of all parties, or for early termination
with not less than two weeks of written notice from any of the parties.

The VIANurse Registry is using the RNCareer site,
however the VIANurse data are kept separate and confidential and accessible
only to those employers who are designated as on emergency status as defined
by the MOHLTC. Such employers will access VIANurse through the "VIANurse
Employers" component of the electronic VIANurse site.
