Our Mission

We regulate nursing in the northwest territories and Nunavut. Through licensing, policies and standards we promote excellence in nursing and ensure public safety.

Professional Practice

Professional Practice information assists in guiding nursing practice.

Find a nurse



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).

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
