RHPA Newsletter (updated Oct 31 2017)
The purpose of this newsletter is to inform and educate Registered Nurses and Nurse Practitioners about a change to our provincial legislation that will have a significant impact on ARNPEI and our membership. The Registered Nurses Act (RNA) will be repealed this Fall (2017) and replaced with the Regulated Health Professions Act (RHPA), The current mandate and objects of ARNPEI (as identified in the RN Act) can likely continue under the new legislation, with minor changes. Please read the complete RHPA Newsletter document.
