In the June issue of The Standard, we asked for your input on proposed changes to the registration regulation. The response was remarkable — almost 1,600 people and groups gave feedback.
“We believe the survey format and electronic distribution were instrumental in making this the most responded to consultation ever,” said Kevin McCarthy, Director, Strategy.
“This is the first time we’ve sought feedback on proposed regulation changes since The Standard became an online magazine. When it was a printed magazine, we included consultation material as an insert in the magazine and asked respondents to send an email to the College.”
Despite the consultation period being 30 days shorter than normal, the College received feedback from 1,022 nurses, 204 applicants, 190 members of the public (an unprecedented public response), 83 educators, 83 other stakeholders (mostly nursing students) and 15 nursing employers.
