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 regisgjhgjhghjunavut (NU). 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).
Registered nurses and nurse practitioners are the only self-regulated health professionals in both the NT and NU. The regulatory functions of RNANT/NU per the Nursing Profession Acts (NPA) serve to protect the public and include:
- Member Registration;
- Professional Conduct Review; and
- Approval of Education Programs
