NP Regulation

The Nurse Practitioner Regulation Framework Implementation Plan Project (NPR-FIPP) is a multi-year, multi-faceted initiative commissioned by the Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR). As a partner, the College is participating in this national project to develop a common NP regulatory framework across Canada.

The NPR-FIPP builds on previous work with a goal to implement the recommendations endorsed by CCRNR regarding six basic elements of a Model for Nurse Practitioner Regulation in Canada.

CCRNR’s NPR-FIPP team has released the NP Entry Level Competencies (ELCs) Development Report. A key priority of the NPR-FIPP project was to refresh the NP entry-level competencies to drive future NP entry-level education. The refresh process was initiated in January 2021 and was carried out by a five-person Education Sub-Committee. From March to July 2022, a multi-pronged consultation strategy was implemented. After a rigorous process, the proposed NP entry-level competencies are now with nursing regulatory bodies across Canada for review, approval, and implementation within their own jurisdictions.
