Committee opportunities along with the qualifying information are posted on the College website, and depending on the timing, are published in Nursing Matters​. Committee terms of office vary from one year to three years.

Committee member accountabilities

The Seven Principles of Public Life, developed by the UK Committee on Standards in Public Life have been adopted into the College's governance practices. The Seven Principles of Public Life provide guidance to the Board, Committee members and College Staff, when considering their actions in the public interest.​

  • Integrity: Avoid inappropriate influences.
  • Objectivity: Fair and impartial decisions.
  • Accountability: To public with necessary scrutiny.
  • Openness: Open and transparent decisions.

  • Leadership: Use above principles in own behavior and challenge poor behavior.
Committee appointments process

  • The Board Appointments Committee reviews and recommends statutory committee appointments to the Board.
  • All applicants are contacted by the Committee Staff Liaisons to confirm the appointments approved by the CRNBC Board.

  • Are accountable for their decisions and actions.
  • Are as open as possible about the decisions and actions they take.
  • Make decisions in the public interest. 
  • Are clear about what it understands to be its public interest purpose.

Voluntary participation
  • The Board considers time spent by Board and Committee members on Statutory Committees as volunteer hours. Honorarium payments are not intended to directly reflect the number of hours spent volunteering.
  • Honoraria are available to eligible persons for time spent on College business. Hours claimed will be dependent on an individual's circumstances and the volume of work required of the position. The Board expects that no claim will be made when a person is compensated already for their time (excluding situations like when someone is using their paid vacation time).
  • Salary replacement payments are available to eligible persons. Subject to the approval of the Registrar, an eligible person's employer may claim a salary replacement for days of work lost by an eligible person provided that the employer is willing to: maintain salary and benefit payments to the eligible person, and invoice the College directly for these costs.​
Statutory committees

Statutory committees are constituted to perform a continuing function and remain in existence on an indefinite period. CRNBC’s statutory committees assist the Board in fulfilling its public protection mandate. Most of the statutory committees report to the Board. In very few instances, statutory committees are charged with making decisions independent of the Board.
