Who we are

Nursing has been a self-governing profession in Nova Scotia since 1910. This means that government has delegated the responsibility to oversee nursing practice to registered nurses themselves. The public trusts that registered nurses practice with public interest as their priority and it is the role of CRNNS to ensure that practice in the public interest is maintained.

What we do

CRNNS is mandated by government to protect the public through the regulation of RNs and NPs. As the regulatory body, we issue licenses to qualified RNs and NPs practicing in Nova Scotia, set the nursing practice standards, approve nursing education programs, enhance the continuing competence of nurses, and address complaints received about nursing practice.
