Scope of practice
Diagnosing and treating conditions: What is your accountability?
Although the terms may not be familiar to you, it’s likely that you’re already diagnosing and treating conditions in your practice.
The clock is ticking: Renew today!
There is less than a month left to renew your registration. In order to maintain your current registration status, you must complete the online application and pay the full renewal fee by
23:59 hours on February 29, 2016. If you miss the deadline, you'll no longer be a registrant of the College. Are you currently a practising registrant?
You won't be able to legally work as a nurse after Feb. 29 until you reinstate your registration and pay the required fees.
