As work proceeds with the NP Practice Analysis over the next year, the participation of all NPs in Canada will be essential.

NPs who are interested in participating should stay tuned to further information from their provincial/territorial regulatory body regarding participation opportunities.
The NP Practice Analysis project was officially launched in February and began with a meeting between CCRNR and Professional Examination Service (ProExam), the vendor selected to facilitate the project. The purpose of the NP Practice Analysis is to provide a comprehensive description of NP practice in Canada, which will inform future decisions about entry-to-practice
