Publication Review – Professional Presence: A Guideline for Nurses

This summer, the 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, Professional Presence: A Guideline for Nurses. 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 RN and LPN members.

To Participate

  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 practice@crnns.ca.
