Registered Psychiatric Nurses launch joint project to update Standards of Psychiatric Nursing Practice
The Registered Psychiatric Nurse Regulators in Canada continue the work to revise and update the Standards of Psychiatric Nursing Practice. CRPNA would like to thank all the RPNs who took the time to complete the draft Standards of Practice validation survey. The information and feedback RPNs provided is incredibly important in helping to validate these revised standards of practice for RPNs.
The Standards describe in broad terms the expected level of performance of all RPNs. The current Standards of Practice were developed a number of years ago, with some incremental changes. The intention is to create a single set of Standards covering all four provinces, fully reflecting the many changes in psychiatric nursing practice since then.
