RN Jurisprudence Study Guide

The RN Jurisprudence Study Guide is an online module to help you prepare for your exam.  This guide removes a step for you by providing many of the exam’s study resources and housing them in one accessible online location.

The guide is divided into three categories based on the exam’s topics: regulatory policies, relevant federal legislation and relevant provincial legislation. Under each category, there are materials, resources and links to all relevant CRNNS publications, legislation information and healthcare policies. In some cases, a synopsis of the various Acts and policies are provided as well as links to applicable CRNNS e-learning modules.
