RN Standards of Practice

Welcome to the 2017 Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses section of the website. Here you’ll find all the information you need to understand and apply the standards into nursing practice, including documents, tools, resources and educational games.

Launched on March 31, the 2017 Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses set the benchmark for assessing the professional practice of all nurses in Nova Scotia, regardless of a nurse’s specialty or practice setting.

The standards set out the legal and professional requirements for nursing practice and describe the level of performance expected of nurses in their practice. For the public, this helps to clarify what they can expect from practising nurses in Nova Scotia. Click here to download the 2017 Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses.

To familiarize yourself with the revised standards of practice, begin by exploring this section of the website. Here you will find many fun, interactive and new ways to learn and apply the standards in practice:

Don’t forget! Nurse practitioners must adhere to both the Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses and the Nurse Practitioner Standards of Practice.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at practice@crnns.ca.

What Did You Think?

Since March, the CRNNS team has distributed an array of resources and visited many locations across Nova Scotia as part of the launch for the 2017 Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses.

As this work comes to a close, we would like to better understand what worked, what didn’t work and what could be improved as we continue to connect with you about important regulatory information and updates.

If you liked our approach, share that with us! And if you have feedback on how we could better connect with you in the future, let us know that as well. The feedback we receive through our online survey will directly impact how we communicate with you and our membership in the future.

The survey is open until September 13 and participation is anonymous.
