The College of Registered Nurses of Newfoundland and Labrador is issuing a call for nominations for Registered Nurses (RNs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs) in Newfoundland and Labrador to join the College Council.
The Council has the legislative authority to govern the College via the Registered Nurses Act, 2008. RNs elected to the Council play a fundamental role in governing key regulatory areas such as Registration/Licensing, Professional Conduct/Discipline, and Professional Practice Standards. Unbiased, fair, and dependable RNs will help to shape the day-to-day practice of all RNs in our province by governing these key areas.
The role of College Council, and subsequently the College of Registered Nurses, is focused on protecting the public and operating in the best interest of the public. The College Council does not engage in advocacy-related endeavors. All members of the College Council have a responsibility to the public and will not promote or advocate a particular geographic region or domain. All positions are established as a means of obtaining diverse, regulatory-focused insight and contribution from all areas of our province.
