As the regulatory bodies for nurses in Nova Scotia, the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Nova Scotia (CLPNNS) and the College of Registered Nurses of Nova Scotia (CRNNS) have a shared goal to protect and serve the public interest of Nova Scotians through regulating the practice of licensed practical nurses, registered nurses and nurse practitioners (respectively).
In keeping with a nursing regulatory trend that is happening in some provinces across the country, the Board of CLPNNS and the Council of CRNNS are engaging in joint conversations that will explore the possibility of merging as regulators. A working group including LPN and RN board members as well as public representatives from each board will be established to better understand the benefits and risks of all decisions and there will be an opportunity for all stakeholders to provide us with feedback through a detailed consultation process.
A formal risk analysis will be conducted and an interim update will be provided in April 2016 with a final report due in December 2016. We are still in very early stages of dialogue and plans about the exploration process and opportunities to get engaged will be forthcoming.
We are committed to engaging with you throughout the process and we will keep you informed of all developments and opportunities to participate in this dialogue. We do anticipate that you will have questions so we have developed a Q&A document to provide you with a bit more information. In the meantime, please direct any questions or concerns you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
