RNANT/NU VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Make a difference and sign up today!

Nursing holds the privilege of being a self-regulating profession under the guidelines of the NT Nursing Profession Act (2003) and the NU Nursing Act (1998). RNANT/NU is the professional association of registered nurses and nurse practitioners within the Northwest Territories and Nunavut that upholds these guidelines for the protection of the public. Mandated by the Acts, RNANT/NU is required to establish committees supported by volunteer members to guide the profession of nursing in our jurisdictions.

Committees are involved in varying aspects of the Association and may be involved in registration or professional conduct decisions, updating policies, or developing documents such as Standards of Practice. Meetings are held monthly or bi-monthly and many members attend virtually. Each committee has a different focus.

Current Board of Directors vacancies:  NU West Representative; NWT South Representative; NWT Public Representative; NU Public Representative. Public Representatives cannot be nurses.  All other positions require that you be a registered nurse/NP.
