Relational & Right-Touch Regulation

Print this page

Relational Regulation

The culture of self-regulation is changing and CRNNS is taking a fresh approach to the work we do as a result. What does this mean? We’re embracing a relational approach to our regulatory work that allows us to emphasize our commitment to the safety and protection of the public. It will also enable us to find new and innovative ways of strengthening our relationships through better engagement with our many stakeholders.

As the regulatory body, we issue licenses to qualified RNs and NPs, set the nursing practice standards, approve nursing education programs, enhance the continuing competence of nurses, and address complaints received about nursing practice. Our new approach doesn’t change what we do as an organization but it does change how we do it.

As a relational regulator our goal is always to build positive relationships by being transparent, inclusive and available to our stakeholders while delivering on our mandate to protect the public along with the hard work and dedication of 10,000+ registered nurses in our province.

Right-Touch Regulation

As a ‘right-touch’ regulator, we approach our regulatory oversight by applying the minimal amount of regulatory force required to achieve a desired outcome. This means that we ask ourselves what risks we are trying to regulate while being focused on regulating that risk and balancing that oversight with the resources required to promote good practice and high quality nursing care. This approach to our work means that we are aware of the environments in which we operate because we look ahead. This better enables us to anticipate changes before they occur and respond in a proactive way that prevents and minimizes risks.
