The updated scope of practice standards are now in effect. Check out these five tips we've provided to registrants to help them understand the changes and consider how they will apply to their practice.
Important: Check employees' registration status
Registered nurses and nurse practitioners must have renewed their registration by midnight on February 28, 2017 to continue to practise on or after March 1. Check a registrant's status using CRNBC's nurse verification tool.
