History in the Making
The Board of CLPNNS and the Council of CRNNS have recently approved a formal agreement that will enable both colleges to move forward with plans to create one nursing regulator that will regulate the practice of LPNs, RNs and NPs for the province of Nova Scotia.
This historic decision enables CLPNNS and CRNNS to join together to strengthen their commitment to the public through an enhanced consistent, efficient and collaborative approach to nursing regulation.
What does this mean to Nova Scotians and to our members? What’s happening next and when can you expect to hear more? We’re committed to keeping members informed throughout the process and we wanted to start by introducing you to the board leaders for each college. Check out this video featuring the Chair of CLPNNS and the President of CRNNS.
