NPs to Prescribe Controlled Drugs and Substances

We are in full support of the NS government’s announced regulation changes today that will enable NPs to prescribe controlled drugs and substances to patients for the first time ever in Nova Scotia.

Ebola Update

The College is closely watching the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) developments globally and closer to home. While there have been no confirmed cases of EVD in Canada, we know this health issue is of significant public concern. We also understand that some of our members may also be concerned about the ability to provide safe and appropriate nursing care to patients while practising in a safe environment.

Tell CNA what you think!

CNA is conducting a survey of its members. It’s a chance for you to let them know about the current CNA benefits and services you use, the different ways you interact with CNA and the two topics you believe should be CNA’s top national advocacy priorities, among other things.
