Involvement from the profession sits at the heart of self-regulation and what we do here at CRNNS. Through self-regulation, our members possess a specialized body of knowledge that places them in the best position to govern their profession when combined with public input from key public representatives.

We are always seeking professional, competent and passionate individuals to contribute to the work of CRNNS and to the direction and vision of the nursing profession. Currently, there are no formal opportunities to get involved with CRNNS. However, we do reach out to members and other stakeholders from time to time asking them to take part in a survey or publication review. This is one way to stay connected and involved with CRNNS until a formal opportunity becomes available. All formal opportunities are shared on our website, through email and our digital newsletter.

Publication Review – for CRNNS Website

This spring, College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia (CLPNNS) and the College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia (CRNNS) will be releasing a new document, Cannabis: Questions and Answers.

While the document is based on evidence and best practice, we need ensure that the guidance we’re providing is also clear, relevant and inclusive. To help us with this work, we are looking for nurses to provide feedback on the guideline before the document is finalized and shared with members.

To Participate

If you are interested in participating in our review, please follow our simple steps below by Thursday, May 3, 2018. This process should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete.

  1. Read the draft Cannabis: Questions and Answers document found here.
  2. Provide feedback through our online feedback form found here.

This is an opportunity for you to take your knowledge and experience and apply it to a document that will be circulated to more than 14,000 RNs and LPNs in Nova Scotia. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at
