TO THE REGISTERED NURSES OF THE NORTHWEST TERRITORIES AND NUNAVUT (RNANT/NU)
The Northwest Territories Registered Nurses Association (NWTRNA) was established in 1975 by the Nursing Profession Act as the regulatory and professional body for registered nurses and nurse practitioners in the Northwest Territories and Nunavut. Effective January 1, 2004, with new legislation the Northwest Territories Registered Nurses Association changed its name to the Registered Nurses Association of Northwest Territories and Nunavut (RNANT/NU).

- Member Registration;
- Professional Conduct Review; and
- Approval of Education Programs
