The RNAO BPSO Program began in 2003 as a partnership between the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario (RNAO) and academic or clinical organizations to enhance patient care through evidence-informed best practices.
In 2018, Conestoga was named a pre-designate Best Practice Spotlight Organization (BPSO) by the RNAO. Conestoga achieved BPSO status in 2021, becoming one of the first academic organizations to integrate the RNAO BPGs across health and life sciences programming.
