RN Standards of Practice

Welcome to the 2017 Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses section of the website. Here you’ll find all the information you need to understand and apply the standards into nursing practice, including documents, tools, resources and educational games.

Launched on March 31, the 2017 Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses set the benchmark for assessing the professional practice of all nurses in Nova Scotia, regardless of a nurse’s specialty or practice setting.

The standards set out the legal and professional requirements for nursing practice and describe the level of performance expected of nurses in their practice. For the public, this helps to clarify what they can expect from practising nurses in Nova Scotia. Click here to download the 2017 Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses.

To familiarize yourself with the revised standards of practice, begin by exploring this section of the website. Here you will find many fun, interactive and new ways to learn and apply the standards in practice:

Don’t forget! Nurse practitioners must adhere to both the Standards of Practice for Registered Nurses and the Nurse Practitioner Standards of Practice.
