The following announcement is from the Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR). The CCRNR is an organization made up of representatives from Canada’s 12 provincial/territorial bodies that regulate the practice of registered nurses.
(BEAVERTON): The Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR) is pleased to announce that the Nurse Practitioner (NP) Practice Analysis is progressing and that one of the final phases of the analysis will begin in November. This includes the distribution of an NP Practice Analysis survey, which will invite participation from all NPs in Canada (with the exception of neonatology NPs).
Three NP Subject Matter Expert panels and the Research Advisory Committee met in recent months to develop and refine the activity statements that have formed the framework for the survey. In October, the survey will be piloted by NPs who volunteered to critically assess it for completeness and technical ease of use. CCRNR wishes to thank NPs for their time and expertise in creating a high-quality survey.
Following pilot testing, the survey will be disseminated by either the provincial/territorial regulatory body or by ProExam. ProExam is the vendor completing the NP Practice Analysis.
Data collected through the November NP Practice Analysis survey will provide a comprehensive description of NP practice in Canada and will be used to inform future decisions regarding NP exams. Survey results will also be validated by NP educators through a separate survey.
