Discipline Committee

The Discipline Committee holds hearings in cases in which an RN, RPN or NP has been referred by the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee because of the serious nature of the alleged professional misconduct and/or incompetence.

The committee hears evidence regarding each case and decides whether to dismiss the allegations or find that the member has committed professional misconduct or is incompetent. If the member is found guilty, the committee orders an appropriate penalty, the most severe being revocation of one's Certificate of Registration.

If a nurse's certificate is revoked, the person may not use the title RN, RPN or NP, hold herself or himself out as a nurse in providing service, or undertake any controlled act.

The Discipline Committee has established rules and guidelines that govern the hearings process. Committee decisions are published in The Standard and available online.
