Joint statements

Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD)

The CRNBC Board on June 10, 2016, approved and put into immediate effect standards, limits and conditions for registered nurses (RNs), including nurse practitioners (NPs), who decide to aid in the provision of medical assistance in dying (MAiD). These standards, limits and conditions must be used in conjunction with the Scope of Practice Standard for Registered Nurses: Standards, Limits and Conditions.


RNs working in Remote, First Call, or Reproductive Health are required to have CRNBC certification. See Certified Practices
