Advocate for Registered Nurses to Teach Sex Ed in Schools

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

Sex is a controversial and sensitive topic. However, it is a normal part of human growth and development. Therefore, learning and teaching about it during early school aged years is of great importance. With the changing sex education curriculum in Ontario, education in schools in regards to sexual health is vital. Nurses are valued health care professionals with a wide variety of knowledge, skill, roles, and responsibilities, who can advocate for this to occur. Nurses provide a health and education perspective in all areas of care. By creating and allowing school nurses to educate youth and parents about the sex-ed curriculum, positive health outcomes for individuals, communities, and societies will result. By signing this petition, you can help educate our youth using evidence based professional knowledge and experience, while effectively advancing the nursing profession.
