In May, 100 randomly selected nurses were chosen to submit their learning plan to CRNNS for verification. The verification process is considered best practice for nursing regulators both in Canada and internationally because it helps to ensure that nurses are engaged in continuing competence.
Members were notified by email on May 12 if they were chosen for verification. If you did not receive an email notification this date, you were not chosen for verification and do not need to complete this component. However, you are still required to develop a learning plan for your own personal use and complete the program’s mandatory education.
If you were chosen for verification however, please watch this short animated video and continue reading to learn more about the verification process.Click to Play Video
The verification process has been created with you, the nurse in mind to ensure that the timelines are realistic and practical given today’s competing priorities. If you are one of the 100 nurses selected for verification:
If you are one of the 100 nurses selected for verification, you may be wondering what criteria the CRNNS staff and CCP Advisory Committee are using to evaluate your learning plan. If that is the case, click on the link below to better understand the criteria and to help ensure the learning plan you submit meets the criteria.
Throughout the verification process, there is active participation from members of the CCP Advisory Committee composed of CRNNS members who hold an active-practising licence and are in good standing.
The role of the Advisory Committee is twofold: to recommend topics for mandatory education and to review any learning plans that have been identified by CRNNS staff as possibly not having met the learning plan criteria. For more information on the role of the committee, please download the committee’s official Terms of Reference.
If you have a question about the verification process, please read the verification FAQ.
