Leadership Opportunity … Run for College Council
Would you like to shape the advancement of nursing regulation and practice in your profession? As a member of the College Council you will fulfill one of the most important responsibilities of being a registered nurse (RN) – leading your regulatory body in the public’s interest. Why not run for election as a Domain Councillor and/or nominate an RN who can make this valuable contribution to the regulation? To be a candidate for election, the nominee must be a registered nurse who resides within the province and holds a practicing license in good standing issued by the College. Any current member of the College (practicing, non-practicing, honourary) can nominate an RN.
College members are invited to submit nominations for the following offices:
Domain Councillor (2022-2025)
As Nursing Domain Councillors, you have knowledge and skills in the domain area in which you practice. As a member of College Council, you will bring that knowledge to the table to assist Council in making informed decisions related to nursing regulation.
Nursing Domain Councillor for Practice
As Nursing Domain Councillor for Practice, your main role is a direct care provider or a role responsible for the coordination of patient care services (e.g., Care Facilitator, Patient Care Coordinator, Nurse II, etc.)
Nursing Domain Councillor for Advanced Practice
As Nursing Domain Councillor for Advanced Practice, you practice as a direct care provider in an advanced practice role.
All Councillors are expected to attend Council meetings in St. John’s (approximately three) and by teleconference (eight tentative), and the Annual General Meeting. Council members will serve on at least one Council sub-committee. A time commitment and flexible schedule to allow for attending face-to-face and teleconference Council meetings is required. Participation on Council is a voluntary role, however, all reasonable expenses associated with attending meetings are reimbursed by the College. The College does not provide salary reimbursement for attendance at meetings.
The conduct of nominations and elections is an open process. At any time after the call for nominations, an individual RN may contact the College and ask if there are any nominations received, the candidate’s name, and position for which the candidate is seeking election. Following the tally of online votes, the Chairperson of the Committee on Nominations will advise all candidates of the results of the election prior to the announcement at the Annual Meeting.
To submit a nomination, complete and submit the online Nomination Forms by 4:30pm on Wednesday November 10, 2021.
