Licences

Each year, we license thousands of RNs and NPs of different ages, practice settings, geography and job status to create a diverse and competent nursing workforce in Nova Scotia. Our role is to safeguard the public by licensing only those that meet the criteria set by us, the Registered Nurses Act, legislation, regulation and registration best practice.
