Get Involved

Involvement from the profession sits at the heart of self-regulation and what we do here at CLPNNS. Through self-regulation, our members possess a specialized body of knowledge that places them in the best position to govern their profession when combined with public input from key public representatives. We are always seeking professional, competent and passionate individuals to contribute to the work of CLPNNS and to the direction and vision of the nursing profession.

Current Opportunities

The College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia (CLPNNS) and the College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia (CRNNS) are committed to seeking your feedback on practice support documents and resources. While the documents are based on evidence and best practice, we need ensure that the guidance we’re providing is also clear, relevant and inclusive. To help us with this work, we are looking for nurses to provide feedback on the documents before they are finalized and shared with registered nurse (RN) and licensed practical nurse (LPN) members.

The Colleges are currently seeking feedback on four practice support documents:

  • Assignment and Delegation to Unregulated Care Providers: Guidelines for Nurses
  • Professional Boundaries and the Nurse-Client Relationship: Guidelines for Nurses
  • Nurses Recommending and Administering Over the Counter Medications or Devices
  • Effective Utilization of Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses

To Participate

If you are interested in participating in our review of one or more of these practice support documents, please follow our simple steps below by Tuesday, April 23, 2019. This process should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. Participation is anonymous.

You will be asked to provide feedback for each section of the practice support documents. Since the surveys ask specific questions about the sections, we ask that you review the document before proceeding. It may also be helpful to have the document open as you complete the survey so that you can reference specific sections of the document. The more specific the feedback, the better able we will be to understand and apply your feedback to the final document.

Assignment and Delegation to Unregulated Care Providers: Guidelines for Nurses

Professional Boundaries and the Nurse-Client Relationship: Guidelines for Nurses

Nurses Recommending and Administering Over the Counter Medications or Devices

Effective Utilization of Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses

This is an opportunity for you to take your knowledge and experience and apply it to one or more documents that will be circulated to more than 14,000 LPNs and RNs in Nova Scotia. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at practiceconsultant@clpnns.ca.

If you are unable to access the surveys below at your workplace, use the links at a computer outside of your workplace network.

CLPNNS is committed to providing opportunities for feedback from a diverse range of stakeholders each and every time we produce a resource. This is to ensure our resources are relevant, accurate and reflective of today’s health environment. Please share this opportunity with any colleagues and/or content experts within your workplace who may be interested in providing feedback on this resource.
