TO THE REGISTERED NURSES OF THE NORTHWEST TERRITORIES AND NUNAVUT (RNANT/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
