As a member of the national steering committee, the CRNS is participating in the Nurse Practitioner Regulation Framework Implementation Plan Project (NPR-FIPP). This project is a multi-year, multi-faceted initiative commissioned by the Canadian Council of Registered Nurse Regulators (CCRNR).
The goal of NPR-FIPP is to implement the recommendations endorsed by CCRNR regarding six basic elements of a model for Nurse Practitioner regulation in Canada. These six elements include entry level education programs, the creation of one national entry-level examination for all NPs across Canada, common standards of practice, continuing competence, one NP registration category based on entry-level competencies and common principles for re-entry to practice. The first-year priority will focus on beginning work on an entry level examination and entry level education programs.
