- College of Nurses of Ontario
The CACCN develops position statements to provide summaries of CACCN views on issues pertaining to critical care nurses and their nursing practice. Critical Care Nurses from across the country participate in the creation of all position statements. CACCN position statements are reviewed at minimum of every five years to ensure applicability to practice.
