Looking to the Future: Education Forum

As we work towards the creation of one nursing regulator in Nova Scotia, we are exploring what regulatory education will look like in the future; therefore, CRNNS will not be holding an Education Forum this year. We’re working on plans to offer new and innovative ways to offer engaging education opportunities, provide value to our members across the province and uphold our public accountabilities as a regulator. There will be an opportunity to shape what we offer and we’ll be looking for your feedback on what you’d like to see in the future. We’re look forward to sharing more with you in the coming months. Stay tuned!
