Finding a nurse

Keeping you safe
The role of the College is to regulate the practice of nursing in the public interest. One of its core functions is to review and take appropriate action on complaints received about nurses' practice or behaviour.

Getting involved
There are many ways in which the public can participate in the work of the College and its initiatives.  Members and the public are needed to fill positions on various College committees and on Council.
