Tell us what you think: Changes to RN competencies

If you’re an RN, we’d like your feedback about proposed changes to the RN entry-to-practice (ETP) competencies. Last week, we emailed you a link to a feedback survey. The survey, which is available in English and French, closes on Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018. 

The proposed changes to the RN competencies are part of a routine update. The Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR) updates the RN ETP competencies every five years to make sure they are current and consistent across jurisdictions. The last revision was completed in 2013.
