Nursing Education Initiative
The Nursing Education Initiative (NEI) is an education and training fund that provides nurses access to continuing education and professional development opportunities through education grants. In addition, the NEI provides funding to develop best practice guidelines, advanced clinical fellowships and recruitment and retention strategies. The NEI is administered through a partnership with the Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario (RNAO) and the Registered Practical Nurses Association of Ontario RPNAO).

Nursing Community Assessment Visit Program
The Nursing Community Assessment Visit Program provides reimbursement to employers for travel and accommodation expenses incurred by nurses (and their spouses, if applicable) to assess nursing employment opportunities in communities designated as underserviced. This program helps employers recruit nurses in underserviced areas to address nursing shortages. The Rurality Index of Ontario (RIO) is used to determine a community's eligibility for this program. The Nursing Community Assessment Program is administered by the ministry's Primary Health Care Branch.
